Cell phone pics, don't be too critical. When the owner takes some better ones I'll update this thread.

I realize now that though they're physically smaller, the bikes can be tedious. With more angles, smaller nooks, and overlapping panels - they have their own needs and somewhat different approaches needed.


1. Wash

2. Clay

3. SHR Yellow pad (4")

4. SHR Orange pad (4")

5. FMP White pad (4")

6. Revive by hand

7. Americana by hand

8. BSG on the chrome wheels (after clay)

9. VRT trim, frame, and swingarm

10. Metal Polish the aluminum chainguard









The only "before & after" shots were of the tail light.





Now bear in mind these were taken indoors with a cell phone. In person this thing looks amazing! The owners wife's exact word was "DAZZLING".
