I wouldn't chrome a CBR, but you have put some serious time and money into that project! I'd still like to see the finished product when your done.

Left my comment on YouTube.

Edit, don't see it there now. I think you're doing a kick ass job. Looking forward to seeing progress pics as you get it done.

Why did you have to put that for the thread title. You know every chrome hating jerk like me is gonna watch it anyway. That being said, I'm very excited to see the finished product. I have a feeling I am realy going to like it. Keep up the good work. And, I dont know if this is possible for you, but you should try to weigh it when you are done to see how much weight was added. Everyone bitches about chrome being heavy, I wonder how much it actually adds. Probably not anywhere close to enough to notice on a street bike.

I actually did weigh the frame before and after chrome, there was two tenths of a pound difference.... I'm quite sure the Bazaaz and full exhaust will more than make up for it! LOL

That's a ton of work. Wow. I actually think it looks pretty good. I'm glad it's not mine though...Just too much trouble to keep it clean and what not. Good work though
