Nickel plating in the UK

Post by fenty »

ImageAfternoon folks. I'm helping my dad restore a 1915 BSA and being a wartime machine, the brightwork was nickel plated instead of chrome. I've got a lot of fiddly bits and pieces to get done and I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for companies in the UK. There's none here in northern ireland.

Cheers...

hi fenty any chromer should be able to do this as nickel plating is part of the process nickel is chromed to give a more hard wearing finish, hope this helps.

Or you can buy kits for home DIY use - maybe ideal for smaller items but the bars and brake pushrod may be a bit too big!

I need a professional job doing to be honest. The bike is 105 years old, I think it deserves better than my cack handed attempts :o
