As stated above, real black chrome is very expensive but is a unique and beutiful finish. Think the old yamaha midnight special. Black annodize on oldder parts is high risk and doesn't look nearly as nice as other finishes.

My suggestion is that you look at gloss black ceramic coat or one of the high temp powders. Regardless of what you use, pipe cleaners and bore brushes are you friends.

Black chrome is undoubtly beautiful and unique BUT if you think regular chrome is a bitch to maintain and needs maintenance and polishing, be ready to be spend 3 times as much time polishing black chrome... Any fingerprint will show up...but it sure looks nice. Gloss black PC looks amazing too and is A LOT cheaper
