If I never polish another piece of chrome in my lifetime, it will be way too soon!

What really blows, I was looking for a way to build a blacked out bike. Then bought a BMW in 2000. Now you can get blacked pipes, handlebars, etc. I quit too soon.

On retrospect, not soon enough.

Actually, 75 bucks for 4 oz is dirt cheap compared to some automotive paints. I have a friend that owns a body shop. Some of the numbers he tells me are so high, most people would never believe it.

I am SO happy my LT has 'minimal" krom... I really liked the new '07 I saw that was all black... but not enough to trade Misty...

Angry blacked out?

Man! I just bought an '07 and they didn't say anything about a blacked out option! Nor did any of the literature! If I never saw chrome again, I'd be happy!

Oh well, I guess I'm stuck with the stock chroming.

Actually, the 'Ape Hangers' lend themselves to a nice, natural side-to-side swinging action, which is ideal for painting...
