Chrome Replating and Pin Striping

I have a friend who is looking for a company who is expert at chrome replating and is also looking for someone who is expert at custom pin striping. This is for a motorcycle.

We have had luck with Frankford Plating on Orthodox Street in Phila. He about a block off of Arramingo ave. He had done a lot of plating on our antique fire truck and does a nice job.

As for striping, Ed Foody in Oreland. I don't have his number, Dan Supplee may have it. He does all of the striping and goldleaf on our fire trucks.

Bob Weiss is an unknown quantity at this point
There is a Guy-pinstripper named Rich Taylor who does work out of the Collex Body shop in Flourtown. If you call there i am sure they can hook you up with him. He is a talent and has done many of my cars.

carboman has a little shameless behaviour in the past
I can't believe Ed is still pin-striping. Ed's the best and amazing to watch. Be sure to ask him NOT to put is signature inside your gas cap. He used to leave paint something very interesting inside the gas cap door on cars he did.

For the chrome plating I would strongly recommend Jerry Martin at Charger metals in Phila. Jerry recently did the three bumpers for my 72 and turned the job around in one week! You can look at his work at the Cavalcade.
