96% of 100

Our motorcycle fork rechroming service brings your forks back to better than new. We offer a mail order service to rechrome forks loose or we can offer full workshop facilities and do all of the hard work for you!


Brook Suspension is the UK's leading motorcycle suspension and fork rechroming specialists, established in 2004. We work with all of the major suspension motorcycle manufacturers and are accredited by K-Tech (Premier Dealer), Nitron (Technical Centre) and Andreani (the UK's only Gold Partner) and YSS (Authorised Dealer) so you can be sure that you're in safe hands. 

We rechrome forks for both private and trade customers around the world and offer the quickest turnaround and the best price in the UK. Whether your bike uses conventional forks from the 1950s or modern USD forks, we can rechrome them. If you'd prefer to send us your complete forks, we offer a fork rebuild and repair service too.

Pitted, scored or damaged forks can cause the premature failure of fork seals and bushes

The fork rechroming service includes -

• All stanchions are inspected, measured and checked for straightness  
• The old chrome plating is ground using a centreless grinder to remove all surface damage. In general, we remove around 0.7mm of material
• All internal bushes and valves are masked with tape and wax, where necessary
• Stanchions are hard chrome electroplated so that they are slightly oversized. This process can take up to 24 hours, depending on the thickness of the plating
• During the hard chrome plating process, stanchions are regularly inspected and measured to ensure that the plating is to the correct thickness before finishing. Numerous measurements are taken to ensure that there's a constant diameter throughout the length of the stanchion
• Once the plating process is completed they are finish ground, with an accuracy of 0.125mm
• The stanchions are now ready to linished and polished to give a perfect finish, which aids the 'bedding in' process and extends seal life

All of our rechromed stanchions have to pass a strict quality control check before they are returned to the customer. They are measured to check dimensions and tolerances and are securely packaged prior to shipping.

We use DPD for return delivery in the UK and mainland Europe. For the rest of the world, we have options from most of the major couriers. Visit out turnaround time page here for current lead times.
