    Preservation over restoration - they are only original once

    If you have the time and inclination and are going to paint, soda-blasting to remove the dirt and corrosion can yield good results. This is using Duplicolor engine primer and engine silver from good old Supercheap.

    That's a great finish and doing just crank/gear housing is where I'm heading to with all "removable" parts finished differently but probably heading to vapour/wet blast barrel and head, possible polish case covers but feel the vapour/wet blast will be far superior! as would be a shame with engine out not to do the most with it but no way want to break down the bottom end!
    Getting the dirty stuff done re degrease big components so that I can start to make space to do the smaller stuff>
    Gave the forks a wet n dry this week and look ok re chrome pitting not as bad as first thought! will post some pics and now also stripping the anti dive /modulators whilst on forks!
    Thanks for sharing!
