Hello all, I just bought a pair of Peugeot randonneur bikes, one is a men's PA 60 or PX 60 (unsure how to tell the difference, and the other is a matching women's mixte frame. They each have the chrome tipped fork end and rear triangle, and while the chrome is in overall pretty good condition there are a few rust patches here and there and a few spots where it looks like the chrome has worn off.
Is it feasible to get the ends stripped and re-chromed? I know little to nothing of the process.
Also, the paint is also in pretty good shape but there are a few spots here and there that are nicked, how do I go about getting those touched up? Is there a directory of paint codes? Should it be something I get done professionally?
I just moved out to France to study for a year so these beautiful vintage French bikes are everywhere and I am buying them up like crazy and shipping them home to have a nice little collection.
