    Wow, I thought it was going to suck, but that actually looks pretty cool.

    They missed the starter button...

    It's paint. Someone here has a harley that is like that. Well, not a Harley, but a chopper composite.

    The paint is durable, and it looks real good... like the real thing.

    Like that "Chrome Audi" that the sheet-wearing arabs were looking at in that pic from long ago. Paint.

    a lot of companies that offer "chrome" wheels are switching over to using "chrome paint" because it's more durable than the real thing and is close enough for most people.

    Are you sure they aren't switching because painting is HELLA cheaper than chroming? They could cut costs considerably.. Chrome, when applied correctly, is damn near bullet proof.

    werd, there is no way paint is more durable than a properly chromed wheel

    well, I'm sure cost is part of it. Most companies that make chrome wheels don't do it very well then because I see a LOT of pitted and rusting chrome wheels.

    "properly chromed" is the key. I have had bumpers and trim ALL with shedding chrome layers. Even old Mercedes stuff peels.

    And Chrome is no less dent resistant than tool steel. Also, that bike would be stupid with metal fairings.
