This.

Polish it. Get some polishing compound and start polishing.

Of just get a chrome frame. Might be cheaper and faster honestly.

Take A LOT of elbow grease. I used wet sandpaper when I did it years ago. Another time I used a drill and put a copper wire brush on it. It worked but it made the frame more raw than chrome

Well this is on a pair of old odyssey classic race forks. I'm wondering if having a body shop chrome them for me if I rawd em. Might just strip polish and clear gloss it.
