Re: Re chrome or Powder Coat whats better?

that chrome looks great - just polish it

Look under bottom bracket and inside of rear drop-outs for serial #, but may be an early one and thus no serial #

Hey David - I've used both Mother's Chrome (they do make it) and Blue Magic.  Then final wipe down with a microfiber towel.

Re: Re chrome or Powder Coat whats better?

Was just looking at your brake bridge - is it stamped "Hutch" or are the "Hutch" letters drilled out?  Look here for some serial # info...

Re: Re chrome or Powder Coat whats better?

Whatever you do.....DO NOT peel those decals off!

Just a light cleaning is all you need to so to that frameset. Anything else will diminish its desirability.

Re: Re chrome or Powder Coat whats better?

just clean and polish it. mothers chrome polish like mentioned above will do just fine on it.
I have a few chrome frames that were in worse condition than that is and they are now looking nice and shiny with nothing but a cleaning and polish.
