Hi all, I have just bought an old CZ motorcycle for spare parts and its not looking in great condition from the exterior, but I'm yet to see how it's looking internally. But I can defiantly use it! I'm going to strip it back and open up all the components so I can learn about my bike without taking apart my good bike. I'm not ruling out getting the motor kicking over either, but we'll have to see. And at this point I would like to apologies for any frustrating questions to those who know what they are doing, I don't know what I am doing but I am learning. So my first plan of action was to get everything nice and cleaned up and really asses what I have on my hands. So a few questions in regards to cleaning the exterior of the bike (I've been given lots of different suggestions so I wanted to get the opinions of those here): 1, For the engine and metal areas, what is the best method for removing rust? Want to get all the rust off. 2, I want to strip back the bad paint job it has been given and get it ready to repaint. What is the best technique for this? 3, If I strip it back so I am just left with the frame should I send it away to be powder coated? Should I do any prep work on it before this? 4, How to clean out an exhaust? I have two fuel tanks but they are both rusted. So after I strip the paint I will do the inside of the tank, I have read some tutorials on that. Once I have everything cleaned up and asses the condition of everything I'll go from there, but these are the first things I want to address. This is where I'm probably going to sound stupid... It's a two stroke with oil injection. I was wondering... After I attempt to rebuild the engine and get it working, is these a way to test its working without having the bike fully wired? I really have no idea about how I would go about this. Any suggestions? Any input is much appreciated. Any help is good help. I'll post pictures soon. Thanks everyone, James.
