It’s a lye bath I use to remove anodizing so I can fix scratches etc.

Thank you very much. I use glass bead for both aluminum and steel. I use a different psi though.

That has been very nice. Oem pistons rings bearings etc. We did find an Oem chain guide as well that needs to be fixed up as well.

Haha. She would rather wash her hands 10 times instead of wear disposable gloves. She is having a great time and is eager to keep working on this bike.

More progress. Played with jugs and a front end tonight. The crank is froze up so she will split the cases tomorrow
