potential new fury owner i might get this bike but there is a problem and that is all the plastic chrome i am worried because once i eventually get the custom paint and chrome done i do not want blatant plastic making everything look cheap and tacky so can i get replacement metal parts,will it not matter or shall i save up and get something custom or Harley
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."

definitely going to be no spraying of the plastic chrome i have already decided to have the engine chromed to a show level if possible and make use of metal flake in some way haven't decided yet still waiting for a price drop here in the uk as i believe it is not selling well.
