Here is the rack my mate made for me. Made from mild steel and damn good. Not bad for £20. I've just emailed Ashford Chroming for a price for it to be chromed hence the tape measure.

I was going to just paint it black with Hammerite but as it's attatching on the outside of the sissy bar I thought it would look a bit shit.

Wilkinson's chrome spray is pretty authentic - you could try it on a bit of spare metal first - just a thought.

I think that chrome paint can look quite good & have used it myself but I wonder how good it would look when it's attached to real chrome?
Black might better

Take care for racks are for use,get the best paint you can to save it chipping,otherwise you will see your a*** with the finish,after a season of using it.

220 pounds to chrome that little thing, those chromer folks must be nuts! It might look nice powder coated. a lot cheaper too.
