I have ODSY R32 forks and was wondering if it would work if I sanded them down and sprayed them black. Thanks!

there is literally no reason why that wouldn't work. If you sand em you will start from raw

Chrome is plated, so you would have to do a LOT of sanding.

I would put a sticker down (one that is cut out letters that are on their own) and then spray the fork, clear it up, and then peel the sticker off for a cool effect.

I think trading your chrome forks for black ones is a good idea. Lots o people want chrome rather than black me thinkss

good luck sanding chrome off.

I suggest you trade those forks for a black one, rather than sanding it down. Trust me, I tried and it's hard even if it is flaking.
