Then, voila, to halves all done. I've not looked but was told the Brembo chrome kit from HD was over $800. If so this was much cheaper.
Spent a couple weeks waiting for a good deal on cores on eBay. Got a pair for $135. Chroming was about $80 per caliper. So less than $250 in to a pair of Brembo chrome calipers.
Also had a full handlebar control set (master cylinder, clamps, clutch perch, etc) that came off eBay for $25. Chroming all those bits was about $100. So for less than $400 you can collect almost everything needed to do a Brembo front brake conversion on your pre-08 touring bike.
Only other expenses will be some chrome bolts if you want them (got everything except the pad pin at Ace Hardware for $20.00). If you're chroming your existing black or silver parts you're not even out the core charges.
