Electroless Nickel (EN) plating
#1
Ref: http://www.electroless-nickel-plating.co.uk/news/nickel-plating-road-and-mountain-bike-.php

Has anyone had a bike frame and/or forks electroless (aka electro-less) nickel plated (EN)? I have found a bit of information on electroplated nickel bike frames, and some of the issues that people had, but nothing on electroless nickel.

Many of the parts that I design at work are EN plated, but I have done anything outside of work with it.

I am thinking about this for my '85 Cimarron; which is in good shape except for the paint and surface rust. And I will need to find a local supplier; I have a few in mind to approach.
