Bill, they are in the deepest, darkest, recesses.

I wish they were closer though; especially the GS 400. I had lots of fun with that little bike.

Nothing worse than a bike whore. I'm down to nine now that the dreaded HD is gone. Did better %wise on the Zuma.

A picture or more profuse explanation would be helpful. For instance how bad is the corrosion ? Pitting, scaling, flaking? You live in a maritime climate so I'm supposing that salty sea air is the culprit. You might start by removing the damaged material with a wire brush if it's flakey, and then sand to bright metal. Phosphoric acid reacts with the iron in steel to make iron phosphate which is very resistant to further attack by oxygen. The iron phosphate is black & can be left as is or painted over (after a primer coat). Good luck.

Cool

Looks like the need for Motoyo's double-throw down triple tree clamps in a R12S version.
