G'day guys. I have an '89 Suzuki GS500e and am interested in doing it up slowly over the next x number of years, as time and money allows. So I guess I'll pepper you lot with questions along the way, happy to get any feedback. First up, I'd like to do something with the pipes on it. I bought the bike 2nd hand and they weren't in the best condition, and after a couple extra years living next to the ocean they are covered in rust and do not look good. I've hit them with a bit of degreaser and a high-pressure water hose to get the surface crap off and am now considering my next move. How difficult is the process of removing them for touch up? The bike is black and I am wondering if I can get that stuff that coats fireplaces in black to put on them, it's called something like lampblack I think. It's heat resistant and is a fitting colour for the rest of the bike. Alternately, is replacing them cost effective?
