Vintage Honda Motorcycle Cylinder Services

A Gorgeous Honda Restoration Should Be as Fast as it Looks

You pulled that old Honda bike out of a dusty corner in someone’s garage after seeing an ad on Craigslist. Maybe you’re envisioning a classic vintage ride or a modern looking café racer. After tracking down OEM replacement parts, painting, shining and buffing it looks like it’s going 90mph sitting still in your driveway.

You fire it up and roll on the throttle only to find your sleek Japanese superbike putters along. Congratulations, you have the prettiest moped in the neighborhood.

Classic Honda Cylinder Plating and Replating

U.S. 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. U.S. Chrome is here to help tighten your clearances and make your motorcycle cylinder perform at the highest level possible.

You never know what sort of surprises you’ll find when you fire up an old bike after years, maybe decades in storage. Streaked cylinders don’t have to be the end of your restoration project.

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.
