I believe that bending chrome plated copper pipe will result in dulled and/or cracked chrome plating at the bend points. It's probably better to bend before plating. Source
i bend chrome plated copper regularly,the pipebending thread is in my sig...
I dont recommend it if its the first time you have bent pipe tho.....
Crazing is the primary thing watch for,normally the inner radius suffers most but you can minimize this by using a bender with a larger bending radius
