I have used the Plating House , and they did a nice job, but very expensive.
Sorry can't remember price.
I have a Plating House front rim on my '68 bonneville (still under resto) and a Central Wheels rear rim (walridge sells them) side by side you can tell the plating house chrome is nicer, but on the bike, not really.
you also get a nice new rim (as compared to 40 year old steel)
Central Wheel now has a "Elite" series which is i guess for top resto's?
While i was at The Barber Motorsport Museum i would say the majority of british bikes had the Central Rims (not the Elite, as this was before that line came out) and they looked fantastic.
If i had known better i would have bought both rims from Walridge
ps, they are always in stock for your bike on sale NOW for $139
