The frame was covered with hard water spots. I wiped it with white vinegar first, then polished it with Chemical Guys water spot remover. This prevented removing the clear coat.

For years of grease and grime I used ZEP cleaner.

I replaced all the bolts with Ti or aluminum. They were all oxidized, and stuck out like a sore thumb on the build.

For the aluminum parts that were oxidized and pitted, I used a table buffer with medium and fine scotch brite wheels, then clear coated the parts. Same with the axles.

I used Chemical Guys metal oxidization remover and polish on the fork stantions.
They had slight rusting so I fine sanded the few spots that had pitting. Came out smooth and looking like new.

The bike was definitely in the rain a lot.

I've never really ventured beyond the oiler section until today. Really cool build. I thought about building an SRAD until I committed to the oil cooled bikes. You've put a lot of work into the bike. Should be pretty awesome when finished.
