The spirit of a Harley Davidson is one of freedom and true ruggedness, sprinkled with a bit of rebelliousness. It is this spirit that attracts many riders to the make. One thing that most Harley Davidson owners notice early on is that the vehicle is an extension of their very essence.
Adding Black Chrome to Motorcycle Wheels
But adding a personal look to your bike is what some have trouble with, yet there are a few things you can start with. For one, you can replace your rims with black chrome wheels. Using black for your rims is a definite way to add a personal touch to your bike that opens up the door for more changes.
Black, after all, is the color that highlights any other color beautifully, just in case you were thinking of adding accents to your bike.
Why Get Black Rims?
Black rims, especially now, are a good idea because they offer more durability than the rims your bike came with. The rim color is achieved through a specialized combination between copper, nickel, and dyes.
The difference is the electrical connection made between nickel or copper that occurs on a molecular level, meaning that the black becomes one with the rims. Other rims keep the color and the rims separate from each other. This difference makes black rims scratch-resistant, and they will not discolor.
Hopefully you can see that choosing black rims is a smart choice and should make it easier to detail your bike. This should keep your Harley looking good for many years to come.

Enhance the way any vehicle looks with chrome plating rims. Chrome gives vehicles an upscale look that is not easily attainable from other forms of vehicle customization. Using chrome to adorn and improve a vehicle, will not only give the ride a highly sought after look, but chrome will offer a layer of protection as well.
Chrome Plating Application Process
The application process of chrome plating requires a skilled individual to perform it. First, an overlay of chromium is put on the base metal of your choosing. These metals include but are not limited to, lead, nickel, zinc and copper. The end result of this process is the shiny, attractive protective finish that will keep the base metal it coats from crumbling and rusting.
When applying chrome to vehicles and other items, most professionals will use bright chrome. It is applied in a thin layer and usually used as a decoration. In order to successfully apply the chrome to plastic, aluminum compounds must first be used as a bottom layer. To apply to metals like copper and steel, nickel would be the choice metal for a bottom layer.
Black Chrome Application
Black chrome has its own set of rules for application. This dark finish is preceded with nickel first and chromium second. Oil or wax can be applied to give this finish more appeal. This finish does not hold up for as long as its shiner, brighter counterpart and can be a softer. Uses for black chrome vary from optics to cars.
