    I need suggestions please, here is an Update on the bike, its a honda z50RD 1986 Christmas special all chromed. I Removed the tank, seat and fenders.
    Seat pan is damaged, i need a seat.
    I Will be treating the inside with evaporust, now on the petcock, the treads for the petcock are damaged, any alternative ways to mount the petcock? Or repair? Not ready to spend 2k on a tank.
    Last, im going to continue taking the bike apart, frame is very solid and very light rust on it but the chrome needs to be bought back to life, whats the best technique and safest harmless chrome cleaner i can use?

    I've had very good results with Meguires chrome wheel cleaner. Soak it and scrub with a scratchless pad, apply again, let it soak overnight, and then keep doing that regime until the rust is gone. Rinse with water, dry it, and then wax. If the rust isn't TOO bad, it will work wonders. The pics below is a K0 fender and tail. Its hard to tell from the crappy pics, but the fenders and tail had little spots of rust, dirty, and basically looked like crap. As for that petcock outlet, I would wire brush it, then I would prop the tank to where the petcock is submerged in a cup of evaporust. That way it may be cleanable to be sealed and you can fill the tank with the evaporust. IMGA1277.jpg IMGA1278.jpg IMGA1283.jpg IMGA1380.jpg
