do you see many decent chrome mtb parts these days? Bontrager learnt that lesson the hard way with their old clamp up forks. Chroming can cause the inner steel to "sweat". basically the internal steel rusts away as it cant breath. Same thing happened with the early nickel plated marin team issues. Eventually holes appear in the chrome, with the steel underneath being in even worse shape... I have some pace RC30s like this
Inkeepin with kona I reckon. Look for a previously used 1 stock colour & get it (cheaply, normally less than Â£50) at your local powdercoaters, or for more glossy finish (& higher price) a car body shop.
Obviously if you want a full restro job, decals etc argos cycles is the answer, but Â£150 min.
good luck. I've done bare bones to full restore & its probs the most rewarding
