LUGGED CHROMOVELATO FRAME
A Cromovelato finish is where a completely chromed frame is painted with a coloured clear coat which gives it a glossy almost translucent finish, not unlike candy.
I believe this technique is no longer used because the chemicals involved are bad for the environment, so frames like the lugged eighties one below are become increasingly hard to find.
This one sold on eBay for just over £500.00 ($810.00)
