silver Thomson stem
I've been keeping my eye on eBay for a silver Thomson Elite with a certain rise/reach (I've seen a bunch go by recently but now that I actually have money to spend on it, I won't find one. You know how it goes). I've got a friend who is selling a black one that I can pick up for about half the price of a new one and I'm wondering...is it possible to strip the black finish off and polish it? I've used oven cleaner to remove anodized finishes before but really don't want to ruin a Thomson stem. Has anyone ever tried?
