Triumph Pannier Rack

Ordered the left and right side pannier rack, for the Bobber Black, can you believe they only come in chrome. Anyways, it aint going to stay chrome, will stand out like a sore thumb. So anyone managed to get round this. My first thoughts are to spray, but I got a feeling spraying on chrome wont hold to well, any suggestions?

One guy on here powdercoated them and it worked well. Another guy (the guy that mounted Burley saddlebags) wrapped his in black electrical tape, or something similar.

Each one matters.

Dont spray them. They will scratch all to ****. Get them powder coated. It shouldn't cost much.

Good comment from Ysoslo about a simple fix, for the amount of time you would use it to travel, i would simply get vinyl wrap and your done.

As a Canadian, I would even consider using hockey tape, just kidding!

Or you can wrap it with a spiral cable wrap. They come in different sizes.

I plastidipped them first to make sure I liked the look and once I was satisfied that was the answer I powdercoated them.

The plastidip held for a while but a few rides with the bags moving around on them from the bumps in the road just rubbed it right off. Then I just had them powder coated in a batch with other parts I wanted powder coated black.

Light sanding with fine grit sandpaper and maybe something like FlexSeal rubber coating?

I've spent my fortune on wine, women, and motorcycles. The rest I wasted on everything else.
