I don`t understand, most fork tubes I`ve seen are chrome, the legs are alloy, unless they are upside downers. But anyway if you want to polish alloy, providing it is not laquered you can wet flat with med to fine grade working to ultra fine and polish with Peek or Solvol. SORRY!!
Maybe my terminology is incorrect.
I have a regular fork set-up and am referring to the upper part as the fork legs or tubes. The lower part(chromed) I refer to as fork lowers.
So, I believe I am correct in that the fork lowers yes are chrome. but the fork tubes are what...aluminum?
