Mr. M's Custom Chrome Center was a custom accessories and wheel shop run and operated by Mike "Mr. M" Smith. Mike opened up the shop in 1964. It was located at Crenshaw and Rosecrans in Gardena, California, and most of the cruisers in the South Bay area bought their stuff from Mike. Later Mike would relocate his shop to 16209 Hawthorne Blvd. in Lawndale, California.[2]
