Thanks for the quick response! HAAA!! Just kidding. :wink: I actually just found a place here locally that polishes and chromes for antique car restoration that quoted me a price of 30-45 per wheel pending looking at them. "It may be cheaper if they aren't real intricate" he says. :D I am going to take the rim down to him and see what hes says, I figure even if the works isn't all that great I'm not out very much. I'll let everyone know how it goes.

medic2598,
I would be very interested in this. I was thinking of polishing my too, but really don't have the time or dedication for such a project.

I live in Hillsboro, Ohio. So, I will be willing to take my rims up to this guy too, if the quality isn't that bad. That sounds like a great price too.

I think the 1300C rims look amazing chromed, plus alot less maintenance than polishing.

Keep me informed.

Also, the wife and I are taking vacation up around Cambridge, OH next month (July). But we won't be riding up there. :(

Could you get me the guys address?

Thanks.

I'm having my wheels powdercoated black in two weeks. Don't like laying on the ground to polish and clean. Guess I could stand on my head!!

That sounds like a great price. Post pics when done. Post some off the bike so we can see the workmanship. Good luck.

Could you do before and after pics? Just to do side-by-side comparisons.

Those prices seems ridiculously low. Are you sure they mean a full wet sand and polish?

That seems really cheap! I have a website you can check out. www.gulfcoastpolishing.com I know this would be not local for you, but he may know some others. He does great work though, maybe worth shipping.
