As long as the mags are structurally good, you can make them look good with some hydrogen peroxide and sunlight.

Re: Saturday's score!

I usually take them apart fully and clean up piece by piece. Those mags would be fully dissembled, cleaned, repacked. It already looks 100% better, a restoration produces that cheap Chinese bike feel IMO.

I agree with NO resto. There are SO MANY already done and so FEW survivors!!

Re: Saturday's score!

Man, that was a great find!  It's looking great so far, I definitely agree you need to keep it as original as possible.  Those mags should clean up just fine

Looks good Gabe. I vote to leave OG. Just replace what’s necessary. Nice find. Hope you’re feeling ok.

Re: Saturday's score!

I'd spray some sort of anti rust up in the tubes and do a disassemble reassemble, repack all the bearings, clean the rust spots. I am all for keeping it original but I hat the thought of it getting worse. We've heard stories of tubes looking good only to fall apart from internal rust. If you are going to keep it original why let it die a slow painful death, a little oil can help it last but still be original. I don't get the "OG" means let it rot mind set.

Re: Saturday's score!
