Range for straightening and rechroming bumpers is $130 to $230 each in the Dallas/FtWorth area. Recently had a 68 front bumper done at United Bumper Exchange in Gaarland Tx. for $130 - quality was as good as factory.

had bumpers done in Elizabethton, TN (Tri-city or Tri-county chrome). They turned out beautiful. I believe it was around $300.00 for each bumper. The guy who did my body work has used these guys for years and wouldn't use anyone else.

Steve,

Does United B E do mail order? I've dealt with local chrome shops here in NYC Metro area for motorcycle parts. The shops are shady and the work was crap (two years old and flaking like it's 40.)

Do you have any info for getting in contact with them?

I just picked mine up from the platers a few days ago. Got a killer deal, 440 bucks for the front and rear at a reputable shop that also repairs and finishes steel and aluminum rims no matter what finish they are. I havent had a chance to open the wrapping yet though.

hey, Michael J:
i know supplier bashing is not allowed, but i also live in the Metro NYC area and would very much appreciate it if you could tell me the names and locations of which chrome shops you found to be unsatisfactory. i am in the market to get the bumpers on my SS rechromed, and i want to know which shops to shy away from. i'm also open to any suggestions for good (and rather inexpensive) chroming places within a 50 mile radius of manhattan.
thanks

I live in the Cleveland, Ohio area, and had 78 Elky bumpers rechromed for 140.00 each. The rear needed a little straightening as well.
