Try calling Chicks Harley Davidson. Desert Rat may know also.

Chicks is LONG gone. The new (for several years) place is Thunderbird Harley Davidson. They don't do any chrome plating there. But, someone there may know where you could get some chrome work done. I doubt it though.

Desert Rat is a bolt on accessory pit. They most likely wouldn't know either. Worthless I say.. Worthless...

I think your best bet would be to seek out a body shop or better yet, a custom hot rod shop and see if they know who would do Chroming?

If you find out.. post it. I wouldn't mind having some stuff black chromed.

Wade,

It might not be as bad as you think. My work takes me to El Paso once or twice a month. If you need me to I could probably deliver and pick up your parts for you. I have a 1/2 ton truck and my bed is usually pretty empty on my trips. I'll probably be going back down on the 11th and again 2 weeks after that.

Let me know if you need it
Bobby
