We can also offer a top quality chrome plating service on renovations – providing the frame surface to be chromed is not pitted.
Please add 20% to the above prices for chrome plating on renovations. This extra charge is due to the additional preparation work required on frames and forks prior to and following chrome plating, includes old chrome/paint removal, masking for painting, extra hand finishing / rubbing down and delivery to/from the chrome platers.
