Re: CHROME STUFF
There is always chrome rattle can paint. I've never used it but it may give you the "look" you want for only a few bucks. I have my doubts it is going to give you a good finish.
As others have mentioned the cost of upgrading to all OEM chrome parts would be pretty wild - especially on a 15 year old bike...
I have used both Krylon and Rustoleum plastic specific satin aluminum paint in the past with good results - it might be a better option. As usual, surface prep is everything, and even though they say you don't need a primer I still think it's a good idea. A couple of coats of Acrylic satin on top will help protect it over time and gives a bit more depth. One of the small plastic "trigger/handles" is key to getting a consistent spray pattern.
