Just clean everything, dry it in a low humidity environment, and wax it well with a good carnuba product. Keep it clean and waxed, and dry it after using it moist, and it will be fine for years and years. Not waxing every single bit once a year is the single biggest problem. All car manufacturers coat every single external part with wax when new, espcially those shipped overseas via ship.

I have been investigating solutions to protect chromed components and frames while stored. Is cosmoline the best solution and is it good for stablilizing a bike to be stored that already has some rust and flaking chrome or will it just seal in the moisture?? any alternative solutions? I found that Cosmoline will cost about $85 for 5 quarts. Brian Blum in Berkeley
