Thank you for sharing! Riding is a lot of fun. Polishing chrome is no fun.
I'd like to repaint every peice of chrome, and aluminum on my bike so I can just spray water, soap, maybe a little spray on whipe off polish and be done.
I have an 86. It was not abused but neglected by the last 2 owners. They didnt ride it much, and they did maintainence, upkeep, and TLC even less. I still have a lot fo rusted bits. When I first got it, my wife, son, and myself got after it, rubbing all over every metal part with steel wool. It looks a lot better but it still has some lack luster aspects, and trying to keep up with prevention of rerusting is a pain.
I'd like to see the whole bike, handlebars, forks, pipes, aluminum, EVERYTHING possible, painted black..........
do I hear a rolling stones song in that?
