    Ive been using a product called evaporust. comes in gallons. its not super cheap but works really well and is reusable. for that wheel i would put some in a dish and st the bottom of the rim in. rotate the wheel from time to time and you would be amazed at what this stuff takes off.

    You might try Naval Jelly too. It's cheaper.

    WOW thanks for the tip I'm going to buy a gallon. I watch a few YouTube videos and this stuff actually works. Did find this stuff on the shelf at Walmart? Amazon Prime has a gallon for $18



    Here's just one that shows the results.

    Don't do walmart so I couldn't tell you. I bought it at lowes or someplace like that. Ive dont a few gas tanks with it and had great luck. I just keep pouring it back into the container when im done. Works great for hardware too. The list is endless.

    Looks like a ton of fun. Trying to make a basket out of a basket case. LOL! You are now officially a TW junk yard dude. Ride it like you stole it or push it and be like the Memorex ad guy with the wind blowing his hair from the sound while he's in the chair. You're old enough to remember those ads.

    The new tires came in today and I mounted up the rear so far. Notice the dot by the valve stem... now that I know It's purpose I'm curious to see how much weight it takes to balance it.

    I also tried out the Evaporust on one of my spare rusty rims.

    Soaked 24 hours, look closely you can see the area where the rim soaked in its bath

    It's pitted pretty bad I may just pull the hub off for a trailer wheel mod.

    The BW is coming along nicely. New tires, tubes, balanced, cleaned and serviced the breaks, lubed the speedometers cable and installed a new front break cable. I want to thank Skin Walker he is sending me a set of mirrors and a blinker relay.

    Check out the rust spot on this 27 year old tube. Now there's an accident waiting to happen.

    TP, I went to a local district justice, told my story of no title street bike, how I got the bike and left with a stamped letter that got me a title issued! Did have to have the police run the vin to make sure it was not stolen. I ran across this link a while back and think it will work for you.

    I'll have to try that I bought the bike in PA. I imagine there's thousands of motorcycles out there without titles. It should be as easy to get as you acquired yours. I'm always riding in your area hopefully we can meet next year.

    Road tested the BW today. The only thing I need to get all the lights working is the front break switch. The plastic tabs broke off and the switch and it won't stay in place. Anyone have a solution to this problem? The parts not available for a 1988 but it is available for bikes with disk breaks 2001 and later. Has anyone ever tried using a switch from a disk break bike on an earlier bike?

    The bike ran good but I do need to tweak the carb a bit and finish installing the plastics.
