Hi. The rim is quite dense in build up of rust and other stuff. Can not see any markings of size or anything?
As the bike is, I am going to try leave in as much original condition as possible, I am going to scrape away as much rust as possible, but really like the whole look, with age and wear etc, so not going to go to crazy on the wipe down.
I was just speaking with a friend who is a lot older than me who suggested I don't use any sort of wire wool or any abrasive.... To make sure I dont kill any paint or chrome.
This is the first time I have worked on anything so old, any suggestions on how I can carry out the work and maintain the bike's age.
Any suggestions on types of liquids to use/cloths/methods etc..... For instance I nearly decided to use oxalic acid on the rims before I realized that this would just make the rest of the bike look weird...
So please any suggestions..
