    So let s try to do that.
    real good chrome on alu here is complicated, for good chrome on alu Germany is to green.
    steel is possible.
    So polish will be my choice.
    The best choice in sight of ellbow, Time and shine should be the target.

    Thanks, I did have it professionally polished during the rebuild , so I had some help..
    I do ride quite a bit sometimes 500 miles during the week just back and forth to work and also the weekend rides. I find it's easier to maintain it by staying in top of it And not letting it go to long without cleaning it.

    They will burn you up in Virginia if you don't put an inspection sticker on your bike. I hate it but I hate getting pulled over even more!

    Mothers here too, works great. Add that little red ball and all aluminum shines like new. The chrome on the other hand, not so much....

    I used a few different chrome shops. The guys who did my triple trees are the best I have ever used.
    Www.sportchrome.com
    Fair pricing and show chrome standards.
