Metal Polishing

Discussion in 'Bling and Appearance' started by dan, May 9, 2005.

  1. I suspect you've already checked, but isn't the SR frame mild steel? (the SR500 certainly is) Engine, forks and wheels might take this treatment but don't go sanding the SR250 frame unless you're going to repaint it. The example in the link is an alloy frame - aluminium alloys quickly develop a thin oxide layer that prevents (or rather, slows) further corrosion, steel just goes rusty.

    Having said all that, damn that polished frame looks good.
  2. Damn that looks pretty.

    /me wonders if you could do that to a VTR250
