I just got my rear rim and polished rotors back from Cycle Image and they look great right out of the box! The rotor looks as good as the chrome. The front rim should be in in a day or two and I will post pics of the bike when they on installed.

Congrats!

I wish I didn't have such a hankering for ape hangers, or there'd be chrome wheels under my tree this Christmas.

Someday...

Nice!

I just ordered my rims from Classic Components, as well as the rear cover from L&M. All parts should be here by Tues next week, at the latest.

I'll be posting post-installation pics, as well. This should complete the total look of the bike!

On one of the Cali chromers websites are photos of the entire 5-layer chroming process. The first layer is copper.

That got me thinking how cool would it be to get a black Fury and have all of the items we're getting in chrome - including the items that come on the bike that are chrome - and doing a copper bike.

Not as cool as OCC's "Statue of Liberty" bike, but not nearly the price, either!

Not big on chrome but looks good. With that said... and hate to be a damper on the chrome work... but how is the rotor going to hold up the the heat from the friction that the pads are going to create when you are breaking? Do you have a guarantee on the chrome work?

jeez, that's gorgeous. I'd be too paranoid to ride it anywhere.
"The Circuit Rider" Lincoln Bicentennial Motorcycle designed by Kim Shirley of Kim's Auto Body Inc., Springfield, IL.
They originally asked OCC and the price was way too much, the body shop stepped up and said they could do it, The wheels are one offs made by Extreme Machine here in Jacksonville, the pegs are slave shackles, the brake pedal is a USA Civil War belt buckle, there is a replica of the derringer that killed Lincoln on it, the pipes are made to look like logs (Lincoln is the "Rail Splitter"), the intake is Lincoln w/ stove pipe hat. I have seen this bike on display all over Illinois at the HD dealers, the museum and the state fair, and it always amazes me. But it probably doesn't have more than 100 miles on it. Side note, one of the "custodians" of this bike rides a VTX 1800F.
