Chrome plating

I searched the forum for info on reasonable chrome replating services around Chicago but came up empty. Does anyone know where I can get some parts off my vintage Honda 750 replated? Thanks for the help.

are they reasonable? anywhere I go or call they want more money to replate the part than to get an OEM or NOS replacement!

Probably very true. If the part is already made in chrome it probably would be cheaper to just buy a new one versus reworking the old one.
