Ok this past weekend I completely striped down the bike to the bare frame.. (I'll post some pictures when I can.)

I had a few questions to ask..

1. Anyone have any good suggestions on how to get the frame leaned up.. I'm trying to get all the rust off before I prime and paint it..

2. The engine looks like crap.. the top looks like its made out of old gray cast iron.. and the bottom all the coating has come off the aluminum and its really hard to clean.. Any suggestions on what I can do to clean these 2 up..

:Added: Also.. anyone have a good resource for tires, wheels, and tubes.. I dont think im going to be able to salvage the wheels..


thanks

1. Easiest way is a sandblaster.A wire wheel on a drill or angle grinder will work.

2.Soda blaster or I've read where some have used oven cleaner.

Last- search ebay for parts.

For the engine cases, use WD40 and nylon wheels for your drill.
