You could always just paint over it with Plastidip, and you just have to make sure the surface is clean, no special prep work, no sanding, scuffing, or otherwise marring the chrome. I did it to my dash, which was blinding me around the corner from my house every day. The one thing you need to be aware of is that it's not permanently stuck to it, and can be peeled off if you don't like the way it looks. This means, though, that places where bolts go in, or anything hitting and moving it, can peel the paint, like around the bolts when you go to tighten them, unless you use tape around those spots just enough for the bolts, and peel it off before the paint completely dries. And, it comes in some different colors, but not many. It would be an easy and cheap way to "black out" a bike without permanently changing the look of the bike, so it could be sold with the chrome later.
