What is the finish on the seat tilt adjuster? Is it chrome or just a mat finish steel.

Definitely not chrome. Just steel with no paint I can see. It does discolor or get surface rust over time.

IIRC that's a flat silver zinc plate finish on it in the pic above.

If you're needing to refinish yours, then you can group other similar finish parts & take them to your local plater, or Bruce Stone/bdstone on here may have some which he's restored.

Hi, where did you get the boot for your hand break? That looks good.
