Lovely. Please share who is doing the rechrome, your experiences and the prep you put in. Please, do not just say 'going for a rechrome' an 'out of my hat' a rechromed frame appears. Make it a thread. Hanging for involvement.
Wanted: Tioga Rhino III (BIG TIME WANT) or Shimano 5000 frame set (Hattori Prosight)
