Well...Shannon...I got news for ya bud!
I have show chrome shearers, got them August of last year from Matt's "new Chromer" and it's flaking at the head pipe...just before the bend. I clean them and never dull them after any race or weekend of riding. Just a hose and soapy water, no power wash, etc.
First race I had them, the seam split. To his credit, I got them back quickly....very pleased.
I took them off two days ago to borrow to a friend, wiping them down...noticed the chrome starting to peel and flake off.
I love the shearer pipe, but I'd get raw next time and have my chromer do them up....
I asked Travis to join...haven't heard from him. But I haven't him post a lot lately on any of the forums..
Maybe he's lucky...he's actually riding and staying away from the keyboard....LOL....
Can't we all be so lucky??
