    Im looking to get the front forks of my Duke 450 Scrambler done. A mob here can do for $450 each leg.
    Anyone know of a mob that does it ? I might shop around for prices.
    Cheers.

    Ross, if you are having to.send them away, have a chat with RAD at Yeerongpilly. They do a lot of rechroming for the suspension shops up here and for fixing up old bikes suspension.

    Thanks for the leads. Well just proves again how screwed we get over here. $450 to $490 PER leg here.
    2 of the above suggested businesses quoted around $400 for the pair.

    Another vote for Rad Hard Chroming here. My bike mech restores TZ Yam racebikes, and they're the mob he uses.

    Why do they call it Hard chrome? I've never seen a soft chrome option .

    Maybe not quite soft but 'show' chroming or 'triple' chrome plating is very different to chroming for wear and or low friction. Details of the differences I don't know n don't care to know. Just know they are different and I can live with that.

    Oh and another happy customer from Rad Hard Croming.

    Cheers
