This is how we got it, strangely it was heavily upgraded at some point in it's life.









And here it is today, cleaned, greased, added barcons and routed the brake cables back to stock.

I did most of the work but my son helped out and did a bunch of cleaning and wrapped the bars.

Thanks, I was actually a bit concerned with how it would clean up because it was really crusty but it really came out nicely.

Some of the aluminum had some really odd discoloration that doesn't show up well in the pics but it came right off with very little effort.
