My newly CermaKromed exhaust from Techline Coatings and applied by Electro Tech Coatings, San Marcos, Ca. Tho not quite as nice as a new, pristine set of Delkovic Stainless Steel pipes, it's an affordable alternative. This cost me $200. There are pros and cons which I'll cover in another post.

I really like the look of that, 1Oldman. Looks like the chrome pipes the XJ's in Europe had fitted. Do you think it'll hold up on the headers?

I am getting ready to repaint my exhaust and mufflers (my girl has scratched them up with her shoes). Do they do a black coating?

In my formative years of riding everything of any quality was chromed. The only things that had painted wheels and exhausts were military bikes, some police bikes, and postal trikes. That being said I lusted after those European Divvy's chrome exhausts but couldn't justify spending $400-$500 on an exhaust system for a bike with a book value of $1500. As I became more fond of my scooter, tho, I thought I might be able to justify the $200 that this cost. How it will hold up, only time will tell.
Tech Line also makes a stainless steel coating that can be done by the individual. They also have a variety of coatings in about any color that you want.

Looks really good Oldman. According to the tech line website it should hold up for a looooong time too... probably until long after the bike has rusted away around it.

Thanks, my big concern is rock chips since it's supposed to be ceramic. 'bout time to check valve clearances and the tune with the air/fuel ratio meter but it's still running great from last time even tho the exhaust should be running hotter due to the ceramic containment. I get all jazzed now when I walk out and see those shiny pipes. :grins:
