Wow... I wish I had such problems! A RRA Moderne is primo English iron. But you can't beat the one-two-three approach of rubbing compound-polishing compound-auto wax to bring back British bike enamel of any colour. I've enjoyed all this discussion about cleaning fluids etc. My philiosophy is that if doesn't stink up the apt. and make my head spin, it's no damn good.
