Rust in peace



I last rode the 750 in November, and lazily threw it back into the shed not realising the roads I'd ridden over had been salted and gritted. I hardly ever wash my bike as it is, so no surprise then that the Italian chrome has protested now I've come back to it five months on. Oh well...

Ahhh, Italian chrome... I didn't even bother rechroming the Radaellis on my Aermacchi. Instead, powdercoating and stainless spokes seemed like a better combination. In fact, I'm trying to eliminate or cover up as much chrome as possible on the bike.

Italian chrome was never the best when you look after it. So abusing it isn't the best thing to do either...who needs chrome anyway?

Italian chrome = Instant Patina!

Yes, absolutely right, and the S3 is going more and more that way, which of course is a good thing!

Hallo,

naja als Patina würde ich das nicht bezeichnen, vor allem wenn es dann mal durch ist.

Lieber vorsorgen.
