Here are some photos of the stripped frame
A bit of work still to be done to clean it all
Then wet or dry treatment
A friend of mine is a motor vehicle sprayer,he says it will take laquer on the steel
But would have to add etched primer for the painted bits.

If it were my frame and I wanted to keep the bare metal look I would have it soda blasted then primed and lacquered


Don't get it sand blasted as that is too course

I don't quite follow what you mean by priming and then laquer.
I thought primer came in different colours????
I would love to get the bare metal look polished and clear lacquered.
Sorry for being a pain.

PS what's astonishing is the weight is so light

You can not lacquer on top of bare metal the lacquer won't bond to the tubes, you need to use some sort of primer. If you have a local car paint shop go in and speak with them and they will be able to advise what products are available in your area.
