Thanks,I got the SIMICHROME POLISH from my local Honda dealer but they are one of the largest in the nation so they carry a lot of stuff others dont.This polish is so easy to use compared to other polish.I just used a cloth to wipe it off .I would imagine that if you use a buffer it would be even better if that is possible.It even hides small pitted rusted spots.I payed $9 but it should last a very long time.You may be able to get some through the company on the box .

Thanks Josh,For you that dont know that 750 is one of Calicruisers creations .Josh i am riding the heck out of that bike.Of course all the events i go to are full of harleys but all most all have had hondas in the past and really like your work.This 550 i am messing with is just going to be a store hopper.I wont have much cash in it but it will be a new re-build.I should have sent the tank and side panels to you guys for paint but what the heck i need to say i have done something even if it is a can job.

Well not much this week because the guy working on the motor is busy doing his thing at the national flat track races coming up next weekend .I am lucky he even works on my stuff.I guess it is because i only live a mile or so away from the shop.He is one of the best racing wrenches in the U.S..His name is Travis Smith.Here is a pic of him a couple years ago.He is a great guy to talk with about motors. http://www.suzukiflattrack.com/crew_travis.html
