Chai plates........renewal?

Posted: 27 Oct 2015 - By: Paul Taylor



I have a 1972 R34. She has I think, got her original bronze chainplates.

How well do these fittings wear over the years?  Are they items that some or many owners have replaced over time?

There have been a few references to chain plate replacement in postings on this forum but not enough to judge how widespread this practice is.

I have read a little about crevice corrosion in stainless steel but I know nothing about how bronze performs over time
