Re: The Standard Bykes 1" thread post`em up!

Here is my Gardner Built Standard Industries Lengthy number G178. I bought this off of johnu773 a month ago. Here is his write up on it.
http://bmxmuseum.com/bikes/standard_bykes/92209
Due to prior sandblasting it has alot of profile which kept it from getting rechromed originally. I am sending the bike off to a polisher to hopefully remove a lot of the peaks and valleys. I will be doing a satin chrome so it wont need to be perfect.

Why did you remove the beautiful white color? Was that not the original color? I thought it looked really dope.

It was originally satin chrome. I wouldn't dare remove originality, but this bike has been thru the ringer over the years.
The white spray bomb paint job wasn't very good in person, It looked great in the pics tho.wink

Thank you smile how did I miss that one J picked up what an amazing deal and fantastic frame set big_smile Maybe I should start a Gardner Registry like the S&M WidowMaker registry that might be pretty cool.

My old Shorty that I sold a couple years ago. It is a 96 with older decals (decals came straight from Rick, those decals were used because they were easier to find than the correct ones).

Re: The Standard Bykes 1" thread post`em up!

Question: how exactly did Gardner do the "satin chrome?" Is it merely gloss clear over raw? What was the actual treatment? (I've never heard the term 'satin chrome' other than on the Basics / Gardner Standards.

It wasn`t clear over raw though that was done on some of the frames. I`m thinking that it was probably just low grade chroming, the chrome is shiny but you can`t really see your reflection in it and it`s very common to see the chrome yellowed around the seat post clamp area and bottom bracket. The really odd part also is that Standard forks always seemed to have really nice chrome.
