I've got a set of pipes I want to run but they need to be rechromed but have heard that chromers won't chrome used pipes because the carbon inside the pipes? Anyone ever clean that shit out and how?

I don't remember what all had to be done to clean them but my chrome didn't do my used pipes either cause they where used.

What were you looking for? Some Gay ass flaming rainbow spewing my little pony march for your gay rights advertisement? OK if this doesn't make the best quotes of 2012 I give up. LOL :D

I have never had to clean the inside of a pipe but i once sprung an oil leak on my ironhead on a ride and had oil burned to my pipes. Using oven cleaner, a sponge, a bucket of water and a rag. We ran the bike to heat up the pipes and hit it with the oven cleaner and scrubed real quick. then grab the rag out of the water and wash it off and repeat over and over. It worked pretty well, but like i said iv never had to clean out the inside but something like this might work.

Problem here is the pipes are for a build so the bike isn't running.

Maybe you can close the ends of the pipe with a piece of aluminum.
