So what have you used to 'seal' the alloy finish or have you left it in a raw state ?

Left it raw, since i almost always wash my bike when i been out on it, and it´s easy to re polish later.

Flemming,

Did you have to file/sand the welds?

Flemming,

It looks great - i have seen a frame done like that and i loved it but i would worry about keeping the finish as good. Do you use and particular polish?
