While I really like chrome when properly done I have to say that in your photo the chrome stands out too much. It's brightness and high contrast compared to the rest of the bike is drawing attention away from more important parts. It just doesn't blend in. Even when looking at other parts it pulls your eyes back to what is really not one of the important aspects of the bike. The other shiny bits are just to small to provide any balance.
I'd vote for flat black or powder coated the same colour as the bags.
Not all those who wander are lost.
