    Hi Michael,

        Nice to see someone from Nova Scotia is taking advantage of a membership in the CVMG. I could never understand why a Section was not created here? Now to your question. I agree with Ian that Gary's Custom Cycle in Ottawa would be a good bet. In my experiences with Gary, I found him to be very knowledgeable about the chrome plating process particularly as related to motorcycle parts. Suggest you give him a call at 613-565-7166 and discuss your requirements. Do remember that no matter who you use, the cost will be "significant".    Regards, Bob...

    Get a quote from G&G Buffing in Montreal first that way you can have some leverage when dealing with the "chrome mafia" By the way Ian, Deco Chrome is in Ormstown not Montreal.The owner of Deco Chrome started his career at G& G Buffing. Gary also started his business by being a middle man and shipping his bike work to G&G.  Not sure how much of that still goes on but I would guess a lot.  Tread carefully ,specify  a heavy copper base before the nickel and chrome.

    A lot of CVMG guys use Deco chrome for their gas tanks etc. I used Gary for my gas & oil tank. Gary has a chrome shop in Ottawa although recently he shut down his bike shop.

    I just picked up my front fender from Mayfair Plating in Toronto. They did a great job.
