Whats the chrome like long term on the Dyna WG...
The reason im asking is cause my last bike was a Suzuki s83 1400 ( dare i say it )Unless you bathed the chrome in wax each week it would rust likes a kids bicycle thats been left out in the rain over night :)

In your location I would think any chrome would need a bit more care.
Though HD chrome is usually first rate and may hold up a bit better.

its like anything else you purchase, if you buy decent quality and take care of it, you will have no issues... IMHO

With your proximity to the ocean salts, you might want to look into some cleaning solutions used on scuba gear.

In the US, we have Salt-X.

Salt-X = The best salt and salt corrosion fighter!


Check your local dive shops to see what they use on their chrome plated dive gear.

I have bent the foot shifter twice. Straightened out with couple blocks of wood and hammer. Chrome never cracked still looks like new.

Harley has top notch chrome. My bike is a 08 and not a single chrome problem and I also have a lot of it.
