has anyone chromed the front forks . the reason I'm asking is I'm putting some fat fork tube cover over the top of the fork. but can't figure out how the bottom piece is going to get chromed. the bottom piece as far as i know is pressed on and cant be removed for chroming. can they chrome it with out screwing up the fork tube finish. new at this so any help would be nice.

big john or one of the members is doing chrome fork covers but you will have to do a search to make sure thats what you want. the whole outer fork tubes can be chromed but it would require complete disassembly of the fork tube internals.

If they are like the VTX and I'm pretty sure they are you can just take them apart and put a little heat on them and unscrew them.

I'm pretty sure is was right and they do have locktight on them so you need to put some heat to them and you do have to completely disassemble them too. ::)
