Iíve always found the biggest benefit of cloth to be that you can wrap from the top down, then you donít need tape or twine at the top. And yeah then tuck on at the bottom.

The character of the frame is in its wear over the years. Major touch up, repaint, rechrome would kill the character IMO. Clean and wax as is and the frame won't rust.
