I got a load of those exhausts in various states of decay if you want any more "interesting exercises".
I wouldn't dream of charging you 99p for them either!

Hahah thank you very much Franc. :lol:
I want to atleast get it on for a few miles to see what an oem exhaust is like. My gazelle exhaust is ugly and I don't like it.
Going to weld it at the weekend. Another bit of an interesting exercise.. however so far I'm really impressed with the aqua-steel

Thanks for the tips on krust. Hopefully it works in the same way for the bits on my frame..

Have used similar products on many restorations in the past , cars and motorcycles ,seems to keep the crusty rusty stuff away for some time and slow it's progress down , I personally hate rust on my bikes ,
So always worth a try ,good luck.

Have a word with P.I.Staker, I just saw a post about refurbishing these.

Once one part rusts through probably means more is close to disappearing. I had one patched up a couple of years ago, with new sheet steel welded where it has rusted through. Tends to go where the condensation can gather.
