Just add vinegar....
















60c a litre white vinegar....soaked the cast iron MX80 barrel in vinegar for 24 hours and then hit it with a hose (took the pics and oiled it).

Am about to sort out what parts of the bike need "outside" work done...ie: hydrablasting, welding, rebore etc.

....and what else I can very cheaply clean up with vinegar!


Cheers,
Chris.
