The study is focused on the material characterization of chassis sprocket of motor bike (Honda CD-70) and a domestic gas valve as a sample. The paper aims at basically characterizing these parts used. For this purpose, laboratory testing (Elemental, Mechanical, Metallographic and Thermal) of representative samples were done. Different heat treatment process was also used to know about any transformations that can occur with increasing temperature and what effect on hardness. To know about accurate chemical composition of the samples, XRF technique was employed. In addition, metallurgical microscope, Rockwell and Vickers hardness testing machines, and Muffle furnace were also used.
