American Bagger Magazine 2013 Winners

Thanks to the folks at Mad Wheels Inc., we were fortunate enough to be a small part of these show winners. Check out two of the top three Baddest Baggers of 2013 from American Bagger Magazine’s end of year contest.  The old-school style Knuckle Dragger also came in first place at Sturgis this year with its custom chrome plated 30″ front spoked wheel and built-in whitewall beauty ring.  The copper plated rat rod style chopper won this year in Galveston, Texas and features a copper plated front wheel.  What will happen in 2014 one can only begin to imagine!

Haybusas Get That Extra Boost with Black Chrome Rims

No sportbike is customized more than the Suzuki Hayabusa, and from chrome plating rims, and chrome plating swing arms to even plating the smallest chrome Hayabusa parts, no one knows more about chrome plating this strong ox of a sportbike than Classic Components. We have spearheaded entire custom chrome plating jobs, including extended swing arms and custom rims and teamed with some of the top powder coaters to create some crowd stopping Hayabusas.

While it is always been popular with the sport bike crowd, it seems that black chrome is back in favor with Busa riders. This holiday season we have had a ton of requests for black chrome plating on Hayabusa parts and custom Hayabusa rims.

What is causing this sudden spike in requests for black chrome rims and black chrome plating services? We’re not too sure. But, we like to think it is our newest process, which improved on an old, inferior process that was often sold throughout the industry as black chrome, but required a clear coat to protect the finish from scratching. Technology has given Classic Components the ability to offer true black chrome that has that show quality chrome plating shine with a dark metal look that will turn even the most jaded rider’s head. Take a look at few of the Hayabusa bikes CCI has decorated with black chrome.

Chrome Plated Goldwings Turns Heads Every Time

The Honda Goldwing (GL1800) is a bike whose rims and parts make it through the Classic Components’ shop more than you might think. While many consider the GL1800 a touring bike, which it is, we like to think of it as the powerful bike with fanatical owners who love to customize their Goldwings by making them look sharp with chrome plated rims and chrome plated motorcycle parts.

A classy bike for classy owners, we have plated a lot of Honda Goldwing parts, GL1800 rims and helped build some sharp looking bikes with other shops and bike designers. We even carry a healthy stock of Goldwing rims for chrome motorcycle rims exchange. Just give us a call to see what we have in stock. Now that Honda is releasing the even more powerful and sleeker Goldwing in 2014, we are expecting even more requests for chrome Honda Goldwing parts and rims. Take a look at some of the Goldwings we have worked on the past few years.

“I am looking to chrome plate my 2012 GL1800 rims and swing arm. Has anyone found someone that is reliable and will be able to get my rims and swing arms back to me before the spring riding season? It is good time to break my bike down, but I want my stuff back by March so I can get out there in April. “

“I saw recently saw a Busa that had black chrome rims on it. This guy has a custom orange powder coat on his ride, so the rims just looked great. Does anyone have any experience getting black chrome on their bikes? I was thinking regular chrome seeing how I won’t be getting custom paint. But man, these looked sharp.”
