    Last year jr kept nagging me for some 'raw' cranks for his BMX. Being the cheapskate that I am, I tried some paintstripper on the cranks and whaddayaknow with a bit of persuasion from some wire wool I soon had that authentic 'factory prototype' look. Next step was to paintstrip the forks and bars and I have to say it looks pretty cool. The steel is galvanised so it's not like it rusts overnight. Maybe worth a shot if the painters are expensive.
