Default Chrome in PA or NJ?

As some of you will remember last winter my bike went down to the frame and was rebuilt from a stock Shadow




To this




I actually have to post an updated picture because I've added things over the summer.

This winter I want to focus on chrome. There are several things on the bike that I want to have chromed including the front forks, some engine parts and both wheels. Can anyone recommend a chrome shop in PA or NJ? I'm willing to travel a bit for the right shop but I've been hearing nightmare stories about chrome shops. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

There's this place. I have heard about them a couple of times but I have never used them.

Mike, would you be willing to ship your stuff to Texas, I can recommend someone very good out there. It's where I had mine done.

Thanks Big B. I really do not want to break down the bike again! I'm trying to find somewhere local that can do it.

Won't you still have to break the bike down regardless?

The bike will have to be broken down - I just hope that I don't have to do it!

I talked to a chrome shop from Philadelphia at the Wildwood bike rally a few weeks ago. They told me to bring the bike in and they'd do the rest. Unfortunately I lost their business card.

What is it you're wanting done that has to come apart?

Mike:
I'm not trying to Hijack your thread, but I posted a similar thread requesting a location near Long Island NY. If I get any good info i'll pass it on.
Can you do the same for me?
Thanks!
