That was plated by Hillgate of Stockport. I think I have a picture somewhere, an advertising leaflet for the plating solution suppliers. I`ll dig it out and scan.Can anyone help with any history of a Rapide (which used to belong to a distant relative at one time) and which eventually was polished and nickel plated all over (Stockport area of Greater Manchester, UK)? Cheers, Phil
I`ve added a photo, Miscellaneous 2007. This is the machine you asked after. Plated by Hillgate Engineering of Stockport. Note, It is not Glitterguts.That was plated by Hillgate of Stockport.

Did you look at the picture I posted ?In Australia, well NSW. There is a "B" Rapide that is chrome & polished alloy from front to rear. It has not seen the light of day for nearly 20 years but is a sight to behold. Chrome horns on chrome crash bars, chrome headlight & chrome Bramptons. Strangely enough, it actually looks really good. Is Mr. Grice out there??
