Andy, I just wanted to give you guys some positive feedback. I just reassembled my forks for a Kawasaki H1E I am restoring and they look..... fantastic! Everything went together so well and tonight am super pleased with the result. Riding the bike is a long way off yet, but I am really confident with the job on the forks. Thanks, the whole experience since I met you at Stafford has been excellent. Great job Nigel Dec 2015

Dear Martin and Eve, I would like to use this opportunity to thank you all at AMP Hard Crome for the excelent repair job you did to my fork tubes. I belive they are now better than new and the crome finish is probably better than original. I will use every opportunity I get to promote your work of excelence. Aug 2015

You guys rechromed my Yamaha Fazer 1000 forks in 2006. I just wanted to say that after 100,000 miles through 9 salt spray winters and after their third rebuild, I see that there is not a hint of corrosion on the forks and they're now just starting to shine up to a mirror finish nicely. Fabulous work. I hope you're around forever. July 2015

Just a quick note to say thanks for the replated Marzocchi stanchions for my Laverda Jota. Almost a work of art and so much improved-probably better than manufactured. And so quick....told 8 weeks when I booked them, so I thought you must be returning them because you couldn't do them, when they turned up in less than three! Top job, Thanks. Patrick (Jan 2015)
Patrick. P - Sulham

Hi guys, Id just like to pass on my thanks and appreciation for the work done on my forks - Im extremely happy with them and you have been nothing but helpful whenever Ive been in touch! I had no option of finding a spare set for my bike as its an import (I looked everywhere) so Im grateful that you could take them off my hands and return them in a great condition! Thanks again, Barry (April 2014)
Barry. C - Glasgow
Pitted Forks were having a busy time when I had my forks re-chromed, so turnaround was a few weeks. They warned me of this at the start and returned my stanchions at the time they predicted, so I was happy with that. Im no expert on chrome, but the finished articles are smooth, uniform, flawless and a dramatic transformation from what they were. I had courteous, first class, very fairly priced service and would recommend them to anyone with pitted forks. (March 2014)
John. R - Weymouth

I was very impressed with the whole process - collection & delivery was perfect and the standard of the forks when re-built was the best engineered part on the motorbike.

Hi Eve, I received my forks back today as planned and felt I had to just write to say a big thank you to you and the team. I had been worried that these forks were so badly corroded and pitted that they were a write off. The forks returned to me are fabulous and look better than brand new. Please pass my thanks on to those involved in the restoration and feel free to use this as a recommendation in your advertising or website. Excellent service, brilliant work and great value for money. Thanks again Peter (Nov 2013)

I am really pleased with how the stansions for my 35 year old RD350B turned out and the fit in my sliders (even though you did not have them) was absolutely perfect - well impressed. To tell the truth, I was half expecting a phone call to tell me that they were beyond redemption, so I am well chuffed. Thanks very much to all at AMP.

Martin Wrigley - Oldham
Step by step fork re-build: 1) Strip forks. 2) Make phone call. 3) Put in a box. 4) Wait a bit. 5) Open box. 6) Re-assemble. I'd never have thought getting old forks to a better than new condition could be so easy. Thoroughly recommended. Cheers to everyone involved.
T.Day - Hull
Hi Just a quick note to say how impressed I was with the service that your company provided recently when I needed my forks sorted out on my RF900. I have to say that the experience was excellent from the first phone call to your office to receiving the forks back at my place of work. All the staff I spoke to were very pleasant, helpful and knowledgeable. It is a pleasure to deal with a company such as yours and I have recommended your service on the Suzuki Owners Club website. Thanks again and keep up the good work! Regards

Hi Eve I would just like to thank your firm for the excellent service on re-chroming my front forks It was a very accurate piece of workmanship.it has just passed the M.O.T. Thanks.
Kieran. M - N/Ireland
Andy, In a world of broken promises it is a breath of fresh air to come across someone who reacts quickly, efficiently and cheerfully when problems arise, as they do for all of us occasionally. The problem with the assembly of my forks was caused by a simple error that could have been made by anyone. Your acknowledgement of the problem and your willingness to correct it was all that anyone could have hoped for. I will have no hesitation in making use of your services again and recommending you to others. Regards Mike
