Hi, Lisa, if you provide a link we can check it out and maybe have something to say about the bike. What are your questions about chrome, specifically?

I have seen the PX10 in blue, red and black but never chromed. Of course it would be possible to have a complete frame chromed. Get some pics if possible.

We'll need a link. Lower level models are commonly identified as the PX model. The frame should be largely braze on free at that vintage, maybe a cable stop on the drive side stay.

At a minimum, a 1968 will have Simplex dropouts and fancy Nervex lugs.

I have never seen an all chrome PX, and at that vintage (or earlier) I've only seen them in blue and white. Aftermarket "modifications" are possible.
