You just pulled that vintage Ducati out of an old garage, and it’s been waiting patiently for years to see the road again. Whether you’re looking to restore back to a classic vintage ride, or remodel it into a modern café racer, you’ve got some work to do. But after you track down all the OEM replacement parts, paint, shine and buff, it’s going to look like it’s going 90mph sitting still in your driveway.
Once you fire it up and roll on the throttle, you might find that your speed machine putters along slower than a pedal bike. It’s time to dig deeper into the engine and restore that compression.
At U.S. Chrome, all vintage motorcycle cylinder replating is done with our NiCom patented nickel-composite finish. In terms of hardness, wear resistance and abrasion, our competitors don’t have a better finish. Our NiCom coating is up to ten times thicker than competing chromium coatings, much tougher than OEM coatings, which makes it ideal for bringing in tolerances on cylinders for any bike, and leads to a longer engine life overall. U.S. Chrome is here to help tighten your clearances and make your motorcycle cylinder perform at the highest level possible.
U.S. Chrome strives to provide the highest quality workmanship at the best possible value. We offer a full range of services to ensure that no matter what your cylinder needs, you can get it taken care of without compromising on quality or cost. We even work on mono-blocks and in-line 4 blocks. Check out our full pricing list for more information.
