As a framebuilder, chrome is a double-edged sword. When done correctly (if you can even find a place to do it), it creates a stunning and super-durable finish that HIDES NOTHING, for better or worse.

No primer to fill in the pin holes…no coats of paint…no clear. Just 3 layers of electro-plated metal stand between you and the hours of filing/sanding that were poured into the creation of the machine you see in the photos above.

This latest Royal H was a labor of love/hate for Bryan who (whether he likes it or not) consistently attract the business of the more “bikeccentric” among us, those with an undying love for all things vintage and French. Just check out that rear straddle cable arrangement and the drivetrain…that RD was the smallest I think Ive ever held, folds up like a little pocketknife when de-chained.

There are a lot of other great details that I’m sure Bryan will mention in his inevitable Tumblr/Flickr post, so stay tuned!
