Before and After
Originally uploaded by whipartist.
See this little piece of metal? It's a rather insignificant and yet visually prominent part of the Ducatil. It's a tiny little thing, maybe 2" across and an inch and a half tall. I scrubbed and sanded and polished this part for about 20 minutes, and wound up with it looking like the top photo. It was certainly way better than when I started (it's the base of the tube that goes up along the cylinder), but it didn't feel good enough. If I'm going to put this much effort into restoring a bike, I want it to look good, dammit.
