Chroming Up

Check my site below for a few idea's. Course this has been a ten year project. Just finished the ear shave and wig wag last night. Rays Vulcan - VROC 6137 1994 - 750 Vulcan Getting Customized Used Parts For Sale Web site: Ray's Vulcan (Tech Stuff)

Also consider polishing the aluminum, such as the forks, on your bike.

Chrome radiator cover, coolant tank, brake master cylinder cover, brake lever, clutch lever, driving lights, engine guard, highway bars, luggage rack, saddlebag brackets, license plate bracket, oil filter, passenger floorboards, extended passenger backrest, engine mount covers, brake caliper covers, valve stem caps, air filter covers, headlight visor, turnsignal visors, driving light bar. I'm like Homer Simpson with doughnuts.....uh, ah, chrome, must have chrome....I need chrome therapy. Need to recite Dianna's mantra, chrome won't get you home. check out Starman's site for a chrome fiend.

I hated the look of the stock engine mounts and wasn't willing to purchase; couldn't afford the Ma Kaw chrome engine covers at $23 per from Ron Greene and total there is six. I purchased from JC Whitney "Kool Covers" which I heard mentioned before here somewhere. They are plastic chrome nut covers. The motor mount nuts are 14mm and you can purchase 10 for $11. I am now satisfied with the result for the price. Looks pretty good. The right side lower mount is somewhat behind the pipe (I'm stock with goat), so I loosened the right pipe acorn head nuts and removed both sides/pipes 10mm mount bolts at the passenger pegs. I could then lever a large screwdriver to drop the pipe enough to get that cap on the nut. J-85-04-E3 1 pack of 10 14mm Chrome caps $10.95 Kool Cover part no. 01-2404

For chrome coolant res. Cover: $21.60
For chrome radiator cover: $72.
