|Some posters may recognize and associate my name and a restoration project I am working on. Value of the restoration as it turns out will be only to me; the bike is not a highly sought out collector piece. It needs paint and to me the bike is a blank canvas to do as I feel and I am wondering if any posters have any experience with repaints.
My question is, the frame currently has painted lugs and crown with chrome fork blades that are chromed about 8" long. I have heard that you can get these parts and part of the rear triangle powdercoated in a faux chrome color at a substantially cheaper price than going the actual chroming process which most likely will be $250 just for the proposed chrome work with paint being at least another $200. Anyone ever seen the powdercoated chrome color? Does it look like real chrome?
