Rust sure does suck. That's why I tore mine down to the frame. Here's a pic of a 5 year old bike that lived outside on the Atlantic coast during riding season ...

The factory frame paint is also very thin. My pant leg wore the paint off down to the metal near the left footpeg in layers. I'm glad I did it when I did because it was starting to get hairy near the foot peg mount.

Always clean your toys before you put them away kids!

That tab on the coil is STEEL?! I thought mine was brass. Gonna go check.... Yup, brass or at least brass colored.
I think it's a coating. Mine seems to have been scraped away in the middle where the harness clip attaches 🙃
