Rear brake drum and plate are installed and ready for use... I have the front brake plate broken down for cleaning... Need to get something to clean the raw Aluminum with... I don't want to bead blast it and open the casting surface.

I've never used it myself, but vapor blasting is supposed to be very effective in closing off the pores in cast aluminum, and also leaves a beautiful finish.

I think this guy is in Canada, but I'm sure there are others out there... I just don't know where..

Yep, that's what I always use, cheap Eastwood setup. Its a little finiky, but works well for what I do. Its a little more expensive than when I bought it, but still not bad.

Not as nice as vapor, but still good. Soda is soft enough not to altar bearing surfaces ect.


Before and after. I did some de greasing before blasting, but you get the idea.

Vapor would be ideal... I do have a DIY soda blaster I made when I was working on my Honda.. I'll probably dig that out and use it.

Soda blasting was the clear winner... I might do a clear powder coat on it... Maybe not... Probably not since it was a raw part from the factory. (Cast finish center with polished edge)

The last parts I needed for my fork rebuild came today so I knocked that out real quick. New seals, seal cups, gaiters and stanchions.

Running to Harbor Freight this morning to buy a motorcycle lift... They are on sale for $296 this weekend... I better grab one to make assembly go well... I'm tired of working on bikes on my knees.

1 hr or 2 a day... Chipping away... I'd be dangerous with no day job and unlimited funds. :)
