For my CT2 which is a very clean rider I didn't want to do a fancy restoration. They get to nice to ride but my speedo and tach had some pitting on the chrome and looked a little shabby. I smoothed down the pitting and wrapped them with chrome automobile wrap from Amazon. Saved a bunch of money and time and looks fine for a rider.

Very slick, B) your my kinda guy.
I did something similar on my first restoration, Honda S90 rear shocks were pitted, I used a chrome sink drain pipe to cover the bad area.
