brompton bicycle has collaborated with british designer tom dixon to develop a prototype copper plated bicycle, on show as part of london design week 2010. the process involves a base nickel plating to offer a ‘key’ for the thin copper layer on top. followed by an electrophoretic lacquer coating of all the frame parts to seal the copper finish and add further protection from the elements.
