THanks for the plug D, but what he has going on under there isn't dirty chrome, it's havily corroded as the OEM chrome on those Kuryakyn made-for-Vic racks is TERRIBLE on 8 out of 10 and a lack of keeping it meticulous just makes it go all to hell. I've had several just out of the box in my hands and the underside chrome is already greening and/or poorly adhered at the welds.
Matter of fact D, if you remember, the reason I first started making my billet trunk racks for the Visions was exactly because of this OEM inferior chrome issue. Owner after owner contacted me about this issue, so I know it very well.
