Wheels manufacturing make high quality ferrules that are full brass in 4mm & 5mm housing. This would be a nice accent to your bike.

Yeah, I gun-blued a bike frame once.  Looked awesome.  Until it got wet and rusted.

Gun bluing is controlled oxidization.  If you don’t maintain it, it goes right to pot with a quickness.

This is what mine looked like when I started

This is what it looked 2 weeks later

Freaking wicked looking bike there! With the wet where I live, this isn’t going to be long lasting.
