I started a thread about two weeks ago when I purchased my first moped. It is very rusted, but solid. The chrome must have been poor quality because it just fell off the carrier and rims. The moped seems to be completely original.
I plan to not repaint or rechrome anything. All the rubber parts, electrical and mechanical issues will be addressed.
I was thinking after I get all the grease and crud off I would clearcoat everything. Not sure if I could go with flat or satin. In my other thread I received comments that I shouldn't clearcoat. I'm interested what other people would do and reason for your choice.
