 Vintage Motorcycle Restoration

As with all motorcycle restoration projects perfection is the goal but is rarely achieved. My first project was a 1968 Kawasaki W2SS that I have owned since 1970. I stripped it down to the frame and had it powder coated by a fella in Boyne Falls, Michigan. The chroming was done by Browns Plating in Kentucky. Unfortunately Browns went out of business probably due to environmental laws. Ronnie Brown did an excellent job on chroming and his turn around time in mid winter was about a month. Finding a new chrome shop has not been easy. Fuzzy Gildner at the Harley shop in West Branch had not found a new chrome shop to use yet nor had Steve at Cycle-Moore in Interlochen. There are still a few left in the Midwest. On my new project bike I decided to go with Proctor's Custom Chrome Plating in the Muskegon area. Proctor's appears to specialize in mainly smaller chrome jobs. I sent the parts in on May 9th and as of June 20th they haven't started on them yet. I will keep you informed of the speed and quality of the work done at Proctor's.
