Great idea, I look forward to seeing the results of this.

For good ideas of where rust forms most on old 'stored outdoors' bikes have a search through Ebays 'project' bikes.

Good to see the start ................ If you are going for the scrapyard dio as well as the rust those alloy engines always corrode up nicely white deposits on the fins and stuff.

Nice start Ian.

To get a corroded/oxidized look just paint the areas with dilute PVA then blow talcum powder on (bicarb is too rough grained) when dry coat it with dilute silver paint to give the desired sheen.

That's a good base to try the talc technique, although I must say it looks pretty good as it is Ian:smiling3:

eh Colin. What is the talc technique ? Sure it is not the same as Pauline's throw it every where in the bedroom technique. Technique !!!

Nice engine Ian. Brings back memories of all the motor bickes I owned & the taking apart of said engines. The frusatration with gearboxes with out puller tools & kickstart spring retainers. Like the effect of wear & oil.
