Forget the mother's and hours of buffing. Go buy a cloth polishing wheel and an adaptor for an angle grinder (4" - 5"). $20 for a stick of jeweller's rouge (buy green) and you can polish/repolish your frame in about a half-hour or less.

I use steel wool, turns black from where my boot rubs, but it comes off.
