All depends on what part you want chromed, what condition it is in, show chrome, factory finish or hard chrome  ;)

Reasonably priced. Is very subjective.
All good Chrome is very expensive. In my opinion.
I have used a few platers in the past. With results ranging from shite to excellent. I now only use Niphos of Crewe.

Garstang to Crewe is a bit of a drive, they must be pretty good or pretty cheap to warrant that
Don't play stupid with me, I'm better at it

A few throw-away comments on this thread... You could try Agbrigg chrome in Leeds... they are very reasonable re prices, very popular with bike restorers, very knowledgeable, but most of all very fast turnaround. Ask for Sean... you won’t be disappointed.
