    Polishing a 225 pipe for the TW

    I got this pipe off of eBay and as you can see it's grungy. My goal is not to make it shine like new but make it presentable and a looker from 5'. It has a couple of small nicks but I think it will look good on the bike. It was done with 0000 steel wool, 400 & 800 wet sand paper.

    Before


    New Hex head bolts. I love Ace Hardware.


    After

    I did it off and on. I'm thinking 2 maybe 2 and a half. I scrapped most of the black stuff off with a spoon.
