    I've got an electra glide with a small scuff on the edge of the side compartment and a scuff on the chrome pipe. Is there any way to smooth it over or fix it?

    The scuff in the paint can be polished out if you can't feel it with your fingernail when going across it using some white polishing compound.
    First try it with a liquid wax if you have some and give it a good hard rubbing. It works on light scuffs, not scratches that you can feel thou.
    The scuff on the chrome is not repairable and better left alone. If there was a transfer of something like paint or shoe sole, it can be removed with lacquer thinners. Chrome is only a mil or so thick and using an abrasive polish will rub through to the nickel plating underneath.
