I'm trying to get something close to the original color which was a pearlescent yellow/chartreuse (my wife called it "puke-green") that was unique to Frejus/Legnano. Joe Bell at JB Paint says he knows the color and can do it.
About the chrome. Lot of guilt here. I just can't do it. The way I read the price list, it would add about $1000 to the cost of refinishing to rechrome the fork crown, dropouts, head lugs and the chainstays. The fact that I'm doing this at all demonstrates that I'm not the most frugal of people, but I do have a marriage to hang on to and I'm pushing the limit.
