I have a 98 Zaskar LE in ball burnished finish that I want to polish up to the nines. It is without a headset or bottom bracket so nothing in the way.

What is best to use to make it shiny again? What are good methods?

for my xizang, I just got a polishing cloth ($2 from the auto store) and autosol and went to town. I didn't put in that much effort but was happy with the result.
Don't know if thats the best way, but worked reasonably well.

lot of people like polishing frames and bits so quite a lot on various forums and web.

Interesting. Thanks guys, think Autosol should do the job on it so will give that a go.
