Chrome plating under paint
Planning on having a lugged steel Keirin frame made in Japan.
Kalavinka, Georama or Samson is what I am thinking about.
They are all in the $1500-2000 range.
$200 extra for Chrome plating under the paint.
Is that worth the money?
Will this keep my frame from rusting better?
Will this affect how the paint itself looks?
How about touch-ups? If I ever want/need to touch up the bike or get a new paint-job, does this complicate/ make things more expensive?
