    I am thinking of plating my new handlebars that I made. Does anyone know what the finish needs to be before I send them out??

    Can't help you other than checking with whoever you'll have do the plating and see what they need/recommend.
    Good luck.

    Smooth and nick free, use at least 400 sand paper

    One thing you might want to verify with your "chromer" is if he's plating copper and nickle before the chrome. ( I forget which goes on first)
