I've not replaced the plasti-chrome parts, at all, on this bike and it doesn't take away from the look of the metal parts that are or were chromed.

Take a look at these photos for yourself:

The plastic is new material technology. It makes the bike lighter. Most people can't tell by looking, which engine covers are metal and which are plastic. My main concern was the plastic fenders which i still am not a huge fan of (I can't do the grinded paint look). They do make fiberglass ones though. Also, you can paint it so it is no longer plastic "chrome."

Some guys are also plasti-dipping the covers and making the bike truly unique.

I have some metal chrome right beside the plastic chrome. You can't tell the difference between the two. Harleys are nice but probably more expensive and heavier. Just some thoughts.
