I have trying to think of what to do with the wheels. I think they are powder coated? or are they alum with a clear coat. Any Ideas?

Clear coated aluminum. If you remove the clear coat you will have a hell of a time keeping them looking good after that. A lot of VTX owners found this out the hard way when they went to polish them. Be careful of what cleaners you use so you don't remove the clear coat.

the wheels are siler metalic powder coat - my buddy spent many hours stripping and polishing his -
he then had them re-cleared. they look great but he says if he had to do it again - he'd have'm chromed

Thanks, I thought they were clear coated. Will I need to strip them before I get them chromed or will the platers do that as part of the process?
