Use a gel paint stripper and a cheap paint brush. It takes about an hour and I think it's well worth it. Make sure you have some fine steel wool and a plactic scrapper. Polish with Mothers Mag Polish, Semichrome, Flitz etc.

Makes the backend look brighter.

O boy
it looks good. agree!
But you have to clean it regularly, dont forget.

BTW I was busy to black my total chrome, it was hard to do and costs me a lot of money. Well but I am rideing a Rocket III Touring.

Guten Tag. Das Chrom ist schön, ich mag es. Es ist wie der Rest des Fahrrads. Vielen Dank für Ihre Meinung, ich schätze es. Wie gefällt Ihnen der Rocket? Gib uns ein Bild. Ich möchte es sehen.

That's ok by me, everyone has their own taste.

With all the chrome and polished aluminum it seemed to flow better for me. Just though it looked a bit cheap. If it was actually part of the baffle, I would have probably left it black. They painted it so it would look the part, but it's not. Also I'm going to be adding allot of the chrome bits they have to offer including the wheels, so in the long run I think it will go with the overall scheme better.

Well personalization is what it is all about. I'm glad you are happy with the results, and as you say it will go along with your overall scheme.

Believe it or not, it was cleaned with Dow Bathroom Cleaner. No residue to make the tire slip. Just spray it on let it sit for about 30 seconds and wipe off. I don't like using products like Armor All on tires. I may occassionally use it on just the sidewall by applying it with a rag but that's only for show.

Hello TB
your German is great. How come? Did you spend your service around here?
Thank you for checking my photos. I'm organicing once a year a trip to Spain. I love the idea to be on the warm sea in the morning and have some snow in the afternoon. Possible in Spain, where the pyrenees are 2 hours away. I am doing this at a private basis.

Did you check my video Channel on youtube? check it out, you will find some Rocket Vids as well

Thank you

Meine Familie ist aus dem Deutschen. Meine Frau und ich zog sich von der US Air Force im Jahr 1994. Wir waren am Rhein-Main Air Base stationiert. Wir lieben das Land und seine Menschen. Es war so schön, und wir vermissen sie zuzuteilen. Wir hoffen, eines Tages zurückkehren und erleben Sie die Erinnerungen. Wir haben immer zu Hause gefühlt.

Wir besuchten die Bremen und Lilienthal viele Male. Wir verbrachten zuzuteilen Zeit auf Reisen und Genießen des Landes. Wir liebten die Berge, und ich musste ein bisschen klettern, natürlich. Dies ist einer der Gründe, wir leben in Colorado heute. Ich weiß nicht viel jetzt klettern, bin ich zu alt, aber ich habe meine beiden Motorräder though.

Hardy, können wir den Austausch von E-Mails über private Nachrichten, wenn Sie wollen. Auf diese Weise können wir mehr frei reden. Was denken Sie?

I have to agree, it's looks better to me in chrome. I held my tongue watching those postings that blacked everything out. To each his taste - but I like what you now have!
