    I used a rattle can to "chrome" mine. A couple coats of primer then a couple coats of "chrome" paint. After about 2 weeks the shine has faded, now it looks like a dull silver color, I actually like it a lot more now.

    If you want a real chrome job you'll have to take it to a shop, probably pretty expensive I would assume.

    I know there has to be a place that chromes small parts for cheap.
    I was hoping some Harley guys on here might know.

    Chrome went out with mullets, good luck though if thats what you like. Have you tried searching google for a chromer, I doubt it matters where they are located since the part is so small.
