I do believe,,,'US chrome' is just the name of the company,they,and everyone else really don't do chrome plating anymore for cylinders.That's kinda old school...

I use US chrome for my cylinder repairs,it's a nicasil process,,or something like that.

US Chrome is just their name, they may still chrome cylinders, but that's on old bikes.

Your bike will receive a nikasil cylinder.
