Chrome Lugs!

Some like em, some think they're overrated. Personally, I think they're swell. Post pics of your bikes with chrome lugs. I've got 3-4 but I'll have to go later when I have better access to my pics

Oh and, if you could post a pic you havent already posted on the forum multiple times please do

None chrome lugged bikes please do not apply.

Been a long time - if ever - that I've seen a thread with so many really pretty, special bikes.
Things about chrome is, it shows defects, file marks, lack of effort very easily - so I think whether or not chrome is your bag, baby, it does tend to bring out people's best effort.

One of the most underrated, under-appreciated builders of the classic era - and mine rides like a dream. Stunning bike - from an under-acknowledged master.

Edit: To add an extra wow. Awesome frame! Look at how beautifully shaped and thinned that lower headlug is - and that fork crown point is absolutely exquisite!

I think there should be a law that all C&V bikes have to have chrome lugs!
