Chuck and Mark, Thanks for your comments on my chrome Hurlow.

The original stainless Campy casing was replaced with original Campagnolo 1960s vintage "vinyl" covered stainless casing. Stainless Campy casing was also used on the brake cables, but that was also replaced with original covered brake casing. Still have the original uncovered stainless that came with the bike.

Opted for the covered casing in both cases because the uncovered casing left some "spiral" marks on the chrome surfaces where it came in contact with the frame. My intention is to preserve this bike as much as possible, thus the use of "original period" covered Campagnolo stainless casing was used.

If this bike was simply going to be hung on a wall, then I would have used uncovered casing,,,,,but as with all my bikes, it will be an actual daily rider. Would be such a shame to simply take photos of it and not ride it.

Thanks again for viewing the photos and your critiques!
