Hi, its easy really, clean carefully and be patient, the old saying about it only being like only once, is so true, so assess it once cleaned and waxed, it will have some bare patches but it only looks like light surface rust. Next thing to consider; I always like to assemble the parts and build it up first and check its all okay, then, how does it look, where are you keeping it, will there be any damp, how much usage will it have, is it too far gone, can I afford the good repaint it deserves. Only you can answer the questions I'm afraid, I don't know if this has been of help or no help ! Terry

I've got the same frame in my shed - if its a cyclone. I have to say it looks identical apart from the lugs looking a bit more pointy on mine. Yours look like time has blunted them! It would be great to bring that frame back to life and a repaint would turn it into something wonderful!
