  1. It is my intention, as funds allow, to get rid of all the chome bits on my bike.
    thankfully there is not too much to toss away to begin with, just mirrors, bars, stuff.
    I further intend to replace all the gay chrome with awesome billet alloy bits or maybe nickel plated bits or somehow black out any of that gay chrome shit.

    Is it just me who feels this way... ??
    is chrome just inherantly gay ??
  2. I love chrome but to much can be gay.
    Chrome mirrors, bars and exhaust is about right for me.
  3. i went the pony, surely thats gayer then crome
  4. VHT Flat black hi temp engine paint will fix this.
  5. lame:

    cool (because its a pocket bike)
  6. Chrome should only be on the exhaust.
  7. Different strokes for different folks. I have plenty of chrome but it needs to be kept clean. The Harley Nightrider is gorgeous matt black. The above post by awesome shows that too much probably save it!
  8. Barbeque grill paint is cheaper and does the same thing for the matt black finish.

    Also, giz pony.
  9. I wants a chrome pony! Seriously, chrome has no place on sports bikes but it's expected on a cruiser and old school machines (including the new trumpy's) and it looks good on said bikes. However chrome only ever looks good if it's polished and spotless..of course maintaining this look takes away from riding time.
  10. US cartoon hot-rod tuner Stroker McGurk (no, really) once said "if it don't go, chrome it'

    who am I to argue :LOL:?
  11. Maybe this is invisible to radar !

  14. haha, radars would be able to ping that from mars.
  15. Lol. :)
  16. It's you're

  17. I just wanted to vote that you're an idiot :p

    but i love well polished chrome ...Not on a sports bike tho.
  18. How about on a knob?

  19. [-( Knobs should only be seen when needed...
    Roger that?
  20. google says Chrome is the bees'-knees :LOL:
