Cast Wheel

For my new bike:

Before

 

After

 

Polishing is a hell I wouldn’t wish on my enemies. This was by far the most challenging cast thing I have ever attempted to make shiny. Up until this point the worst torture I had endured was an FXR transmission case, complete with all the little fins under the oil filter area. This was worse because almost all of the surfaces to shine were concave in some way- no easy way to lay it up against a buffer! About 60 percent of this was by hand, with little wooden bucks for my sandpaper, wearing my finger tips down to bloody nubs. Luckily it is finally done- so I will never have to do it again!
