How Much to Get a Bike Rechromed?

I am just curious what it costs to get a 20" bike chrome plated and where is the best place to send it.

I understand the price depends a lot upon the frame's condition, the current finish, and how much prep is needed....just a ballpark on what you have sent and a good place to send it.

Thanks.

p.s. I am in Illinois...

Electroplating in El Paso, Tx. charged me $250.00 for my '78 Proline. They are one of the premiere chrome shops in the country.

There's prices on the Sticky regarding Services Offered. Chaby's does Show Chrome(Triple Plating) for the price listed. Also read that Chip @ C4 farms the chroming out, but is done to his standards. There are others that Musm members local to you can advise as to prices.

Which is True but that's not the point. We all want to have Nice bikes and sometimes the OG finish just won't be good enough. These were mass-produced and no real inspection was called for-so rectifing the Flaws is justifing the cost of Re-Croming. Besides it makes the Bike LOOK New! big_smile

I am in vandalia, a bit north of dayton. I price it based on the load that fits into the tank. I can do bumpers now actually.

I love this site.  You can't ask what your bike is worth, but ask what it would cost to have work done to it and watch the quotes come flying in.  This is not an appraisal site??????

For a quality plating shop, no.  The shop usually strips any and all current coatings in an acid bath to remove any impurities prior to metal prep and application of plating finish

The only thing you usually will find with plating companies is they don't do aluminum items .

If you find a shop that specializes in doing motorcycle parts, aluminum shouldn’t be a problem. Most custom motorcycle parts are made from billet aluminum and most are triple plate show chromed.
