    chrome plating
  • Chrome plating, often referred to simply as chrome, is a technique of electroplating a thin layer of chromium onto a metal object. The chromed layer can be decorative, provide corrosion resistance, ease cleaning procedures, or increase surface hardness.

  • (Chrome-plated) Dressed up (hot-rodders, originally)

  • In the 1930s, the USN started to chrome plate the bores of most guns to a depth of 0.0005 inches (0.013 mm).  This was "hard chrome," which is not the kind that you find on your father's Oldsmobile.  This plating increased barrel life by as much as 25%.

  • motorbike: ride a motorcycle

  • MotorCycle is the title of a 1993 album by rock band Daniel Amos, released on BAI Records. The album was dedicated to the memory of songwriter Mark Heard.

  • A two-wheeled vehicle that is powered by a motor and has no pedals

  • a motor vehicle with two wheels and a strong frame

  • A circular object that revolves on an axle and forms part of a machine

  • steering wheel: a handwheel that is used for steering

  • Used in reference to the cycle of a specified condition or set of events

  • (wheel) a simple machine consisting of a circular frame with spokes (or a solid disc) that can rotate on a shaft or axle (as in vehicles or other machines)

  • (wheel) change directions as if revolving on a pivot; "They wheeled their horses around and left"

  • A circular object that revolves on an axle and is fixed below a vehicle or other object to enable it to move easily over the ground



George Brough was without doubt the most outstanding figure in the motorcycle industry throughout the twenties and thirties and the SS100 model was his most outstanding product. Translated, SS100 meant Super Sports 100 mph. Tunder examples of the SS100 held the World's Two Wheel speed record five times, the last time in 1937 with a two run average of 169.7 mph and a one way speed of 175 mph. The SS100 was no circuit racer but mid-twenties racing versions won on sand and track and finished with final records at Brooklands banked bowl.By the late thirties the SS100 had matured into a luxury road bound super bike. George Brough who always wrote his own publicity material as well as designing, testing and selling his bikes, declared this model was "...capable of from 10 mph to 110 mph in top gear, was the fastest motorcycle on the road, was recognised throughout the world as a masterpiece and was the be all and end all of the motorcyclist's dream."
There had been a J A Prestwich engined model SS100 back in 1927-8 which would certainly do 110 mph - though not 10 mph - in top gear but this quieter smoother running version engined by Matchless Motorcycles was hard put to reach 100 mph.There were, of course, no consumer protection laws and advertising standards rules in those days and readers took it all with a pinch of salt. No onw was likely to argue with a manufacturer who had notched up 100 wins on his own bikes and in 1928 on a special racing SS100 had been the fastest man on earth on two wheels with a one way speed of 130 mph. For most enthusiasts it was all a dream anyway for the prices hovering around ?150....those lively chrome plated mudguards were extras, representing two years wages for many.Lawrence of Arabia had five Brough Superiors in a row.All Brough Superior adverts carried the slogan "The Rolls Royce of Motorcycles" George did not have permission from Rolls Royce, they never complained.
