    Cadmium plating is a disassembled, immersion-process. Can't tell w/o pics, at least, but sounds like someone did some sort of a quickie brush-on coating without breaking down the wheels. Betcha not any factory process.

    My 34 parts list shows only one wheel assembly,rim,spokes etc.THe 34 price list shows chrome rims as a option,with a note that pricing for other parts,chrome nickle or cad upon application.
    I believe all hubs werer black,all spokes were cad,and rims were std. black with chrome rims an option.
    So I think your wheel has been refinished.
