WANTED:   Skyway Tuffs II and a place to get my bike rechromed posted by: Mr. T on 9/24/2000 at 2:28:18 PM
Hey dudes I found a Robinson 24 inch cruiser frame and am building an old school cruiser. The frame needs to be rechromed so I am looking for a place in Northern California that does it. And you can't get much more old school than mag wheels. So if anyone has a pair of 24 inch mags they want to sell or if you know a good place to rechrome stuff let me know.
Be excellent to each other and party on dudes !

   RE:WANTED:   Skyway Tuffs II and a place to get my bike rechromed posted by Bryan on 9/25/2000 at 8:02:55 AM
If you are doing a restoration, ask alot of questions about plating. A lot of factory bikes were nickel plated not chrome plated. I take my plating to Clovis Specialty Plating in Fresno (559) 252-7320. Tell them thet PKS Motorsports sent you. Wherever you are, there are probably plating places around. The best source to ask about good platers are Harley shops and hot rod builders. They know all the best places. Good luck.

how much did a gt performer go for brand new back in '98?
and how much would one fetch in nice shape?
and is there any value to an '86 redline in nice shape?
i do not want to sell, i just picked them up for my nephews.
i'll tell you what, the wheels on that redline would spin for all eternity
if i let them. i had no idea of the high quality they have.
thanx for the info, chistian
