I know about chip prone early Imron and I know what baked enamel is, but I'm not familiar with the use of lacquer for bicycles. Jonathan Greene is refinishing a couple of frames and he mentioned on Sunday that he was going to use lacquer, hand rubbed in the finest traditions of automobile paints. What are the pluses and minuses for using lacquer on a bike frame? Lou Deeter, Orlando FL
