Adding Chrome to Your Motorcycle

Adding Chrome to Your Motorcycle

There is a definite love affair that occurs between a motorcyclist and their ride. Many owners can relate to the countless hours spent tinkering and polishing. For most, the motorcycles are meant to be customized by adding accessories to upgrade the look or the performance. Of all the accessories, chrome is the number one purchased and installed. If you are thinking about adding chrome to your motorcycle, read more about what and how below.

There is no doubt that chrome will add a finishing touch to the look of your bike. So you may be wondering where to start. Here are some tips how to add chrome to your motorcycle.

When should you add chrome to your motorcycle?

At Chesapeake Cycles, we like to joke that chrome keeps you warm in the winter. Well, at least, that’s what we tell our spouses. But in reality, winter is the perfect time of year to add chrome to your ride. Typically, if you are removing and replacing parts, your motorcycle could be off the road for awhile. So, what better time to make the addition than in the winter?

DIY or Professional Installation?

You can add the chrome by purchasing and installing yourself, or, one of the services we offer at Chesapeake Cycles is a full-service shop that will expertly install it for you. Our showroom walls are lined with many accessories. Another option is to remove a part from your bike and send it off to a facility to have it dipped in chrome.
