yep, frame is either going to be chromed, or painted bass boat red metallic. The motor will be: engine casses coated with performance coatings bronze and the cylender is going to that anthricite grey like is currently on the cases.

Rickman frames were never chromed, they are NICKEL plated. Nickel will flex with the frame, chrome does not. This leads to cracking of the chrome in those areas, particularly around the head stem and swing arm mounts.
