I did away with all the chrome on mine with the exception of the push rod tubes my first winter four years ago.


I havn't regretted it for a split second.i'm just not a fan of chrome anymore...yep....i said it.

Dude, You had a sweet looking bike before... Can only imagine what it'll look like now. Do you realize it was only 8 weeks ago when we all got together at Blood Mtn? 8 weeks ago we were really concerned about finding gas so that we could all get back home. Remember the Georgia game that almost stranded all the fans in Athens? Crazy stuff going on. You gonna get up to WarriorFest in April to show it off????

I am also about tohave all the chrome stipped off and powder coatedblack. It will probably be done around Febuary or so. I got some estimates already and one guy I talked to asked if there were any baffles under the rocker boxes. Does anyone know if the are or not? If there are, then the rocker boxes will have to be soda blasted.
