Picked this up for Midwest BMX Show build about 3 years ago
As you can see in second photo it was long time neglected and
in pretty ruff shape
This Pre Serial Number Hutch Pit Racer had seen better days.
Every part, nut, bolt etc was removed and taken apart.
Chrome Parts were given an Oxalic bath in a form I made
The Frame, Fork, Bars & Pedals came out in very good condition, no rust remaining at all
and the parts shine great for age.
Other Parts like the Brakes, Cranks, Chainring & Seat Clamp I cleaned in the bath came out great,
but have usage wear and therefore do not exhibit the sale degree of shine,
Nothing was chrome polished.
Tires had large amount of sidewall deterioration and show lots of cords, but still hold air.
The only replaced parts were the Chain (toasted), 1 Brake Pad, Grips (melted to bars)
spokes (were rusted so bad they broke while trying to remove) and tubes.
