I sanded down some rusty parts off my 1973 Honda bike project, and I was going to repaint but I kind of like the bare metal look here and there for things like handlebars or the headlight brackets. Anyone know a good DIY way to protect these bits? There seem to be a number of choice like Sharkskin, marine poly (wouldn’t this need a primer, though?) up to re-applying renaissance wax once a month (dubious, this ain’t a museum piece). It’s definitely enough to give me, a woodshop guy, analysis paralysis.
Thanks for any advice!
