Classic Honda Cylinder Plating and Replating

US Chrome does all of our vintage motorcycle cylinder replating with a patented nickel composite finish. In terms of hardness, wear resistance and abrasion, our competitors don’t have a cylinder plating that can top it. Our NiCom coating can be applied up to ten times thicker than competing chromium coatings, which makes it ideal for bringing in tolerances on cylinders for older bikes.

Honda motorcycle cylinders coated with our NiCom coating will not only have restored compression, but a longer life overall. Our cylinder plating jobs are tougher than OEM coatings.

Cylinder Repair for Vintage Hondas

You never know what sort of surprises you’ll find when you fire up an old bike after years, maybe decades in storage. Cracked or streaked cylinders don’t have to be the end of your restoration project. Motorcycle cylinder repair is the only option if you think that they don’t make ‘em like they used to.

We have the fastest turnaround times in the industry, but if you have a bike show to go to, or you just can’t wait to get on the road, we also have a large stock of refurbished cylinders for sale immediately.
