I have never rebuilt refurbished a vintage bike. Have a 1991 KX250 that I took apart and cleaned and reassembled. Fixed what needed fixing and run it....or ran it until I got a four stroke. But, will keep that old green machine. The other day I came upon an OLD Suzuki TS125. 1974 so 40 years old?! It is a funny little 2stroke that is STREET LEGAL. My boy wants to take it apart and clean it all nice and put it back together again. He will be ready for high school in style (when he gets his liscence....only 14). I know how to take them apart, replace bearings and seals and all that. Sand blast the frame and paint it (powder coat?). Not wanting to dump a lot of money into it....got it for free (and it runs?!). So, when cleaning up an old bike like this, how do we refurbish chrome? I have the heater warming up the garage and will go out there in a bit to try steel wool and Naval Jelley. But I'm afraid it is to rusted. Not just surface rust, but into the chrome. Will see. Guessing nothing to do but take the parts and have them rechromed. Is that expensive? Like 20-30 little pieces (blinker cups and posts, brackets, covers, ect) They dunk them all at once and done for a quick $100? Do I have to do prep work on the parts? What about bigger parts like fork tubes and rims. Just learning and looking forward to wrenching with my son. Not a lot of chrome on our KX250 YZF250 and his YZ85 so this is new to me.
