    wow that stem is beautiful.

    how does the chainring look under that grime?

    someone posted it on mine last year, and I will say it again here ... I love those CCM chainrings.

    Not great. The chrome is starting to peel so I might grind it all off and do a silver hammered finish on it. I would love to drill it like yours but I don't think I have the patients :D

    Just found this on bikeforums.net:

    "A&P = Accles & Pollock. UK company, used to make bikes and later bike parts from the late 1800s until the 1960s (also motorcycle, auto and airplane parts). Major competitor to Reynolds from 30-60s."

    I know it's an old post, but I'm mad about cleaning up parts.....
    I try everything..and still don't the the results like this here on the old corroded crank arms, and especially on that Stem....WOW!
    Just to help me understand,
    did you take that stem AND crank down to bare metal and then polish it? and ....also, what is this Mag Polish you spoke of ??
    anybody..open to answer..
    Thanks so much
    Franco
