Chromer: 1) Metalheads, heavy metal fans. 2) A member of a gang dedicated to hard (chromatic) rock music (usually a specific band) and mindless violence. The original "party animals."
Chromer: A person whom has been heavily enhanced with cybernetics.

A chromer is also someone who reconstructs or refinishes chrome plating for motorcycles, as in:

The chromer we use will weight the motorcycle parts when he dips them to counteract the air trapped inside plugged parts...

[I] had other parts chromed on my old ride by a local chromer who could not spell motorcycle...

A search on Google images for chromer turned up lots of fisherman holding fish, some tricked out bikes, a few athletic shoes...and this guy
