Brompton raw lacquer finish durability
I've been reading about clearcoating steel frames and so far the concensus seems to be it's risky with any type of paint including powdercoating as rusting can still occur (supposedly no type of paint will be a foolproof rust-barrier).
So I'm wondering if anyone here has had any issues with their raw lacquer Bromptons? In fact, does anyone know what it is about their powdercoating technique that enables them to offer this finish?
