Hey Guys...My new project arrived from the NL today (Thanx Mel!). It's the Vittorio Strada MAX that Mel posted in the Dutch Bikes thread.
Unfortunately, it has rusty chainstays...but...I'm gonna save the old girl.
I have new MAX chainstays sitting here and I want to give the frame a bath first. I was thinking molasses, but I know a lot of people have had good luck with OA.
Does anyone have direct experience with using OA with a Nivacrom tubed frame? I have no idea if it is a problem or not...it is not heat treated at least. The paint will be stripped, so that part is a non-issue.
