    Just fitted a new headlight bucket as the original was a bit crusty, might get it rechromed  if I can find a decent place but all the chroming I have had done over the past few years for other bikes has been shit.HD Forums Australia - E0BA8282-8CE3-41A0-A1F9-598398C32005.jpeg

    Well I'll be damned, me three, have used Huntingdale and they were good. Plus, there were a shitload of really good businesses that operated in that area.If I was to chrome I'd go H again.
    That new headlight looks pretty good Evo.

    The chrome I had done 10 years ago I couldnt fault but nowadays its crap.
    Apparently the gov has stopped them using certain chemicals and it doesnt last.

    Maybe that's why so much stuff is black or something other than chrome nowadays? Spose it caused cancer in rats.

    There was a really good place in Adelaide a few millenniums ago, not far from the Southwark breweries, I used to send all my plating to them, I’ll see if I can remember
