Memory tells me that Franklin Frame repairs this kind of stuff in addition to painting frames, building frames, etc. Might be worth a call/email depending on where you are. Otherwise, I'd move to a...

Might try Franklin Frame, he does this kind of stuff, also knows a chrome plater. You will have to pay appropriately, but he does really good work.

Interesting the Ciocc sold you a frame direct from Italy, would have expected they would send you to a distributor in US. But, there is a pandemic on and they need to make Euro's, so all bets off.

It seems that you already have a triple crank set up with a 30 tooth, combined with the 26 tooth in the back that's pretty low. Why not get to the new location and see how it works? No comment on...
