Chrome went with all colors, so chrome was standard, Ernesto knew how to save effort and "increase" appeal.
I am hesitant to rechrome, if there is a vent hole there needs to be 2 per leg, what goes in needs to drain out. and the lower hole may not be low enough and or the fork was not tilted to drain it fully and rinse between tanks. Cross contamination of tanks is a platers nightmare.
I want to know all that was a chemical has been rinsed out and its dry in there. This includes the original plating job.
It can be done. Remember that dechroming the stuff on there has to happen first, and guess what there is chrome in the metal that makes up the blades, so they have to stop BEFORE they eat into the tubing. Hopefully there is nickel below the chrome, and if you are really lucky copper below that. Many of the Italian chrome jobs I have seen don't have copper and only a flash of nickel.
