A couple of years ago, I took the trailer hitch off the GL1200, because it looked so poor and I wasn't pulling a trailer any more. Am thinking about putting it back on, and wondering how to best recondition it so it looks better. My thought is to simply wire brush buff all the rust and flaking chrome off, then paint it with some chrome paint. Cheap, that I am. Anyone else have any better ideas?

A good powder coating place will make it look and last well.They'll do all the glass beading and surfacing prior to coating. Just a thought. jimsjinx

I thought of that, but what would the cost be? I want to do this on the cheap, as new hitches don't cost all that much.

Check the car guys; they sell those kits for DIY powdercoating.

Powdercoating by commercial is only cost effective when you have alot of parts.
