That would be my guess- strip and recover

Phenix_Rider Just my but I would expect anodizing to wear off first. Paint would go next, not too sure if powdercoat or chrome would be tougher. Chrome actually adds several extremely fine layers of different metals, where powdercoat is a tough layer of enamel. If you don't like scrubbing surface rust, I'd have to say powdercoat. Chrome looks a little out of place on a sportbike anyway.
