OK, I just celebrated my 10th wedding anniv and spent a ton of time in jewelry stores shopping for something sparkly for my beautiful wife.

Now I am feeling the need to look at some shiny things that *I* like. Let's see your chrome bikes, chrome stays, chrome forks, chrome lugs, highly polished bits, cromovelato... If it sparkles in the sun, I want to see it!

some bikes such as 70es garlatti were all chrome, but painted over. so that there is a way to obtain an all-chrome bike by scraping only the paint !
