I'm not going to re-chrome the frame or anything extreme, I'm just going to get it into nice working order:

Crank looks a little sorry, any recomendations on what to do with this, re chrome, polish etc ?

Definitely interested in this resto. One of the moderators is just cleaning up the place so this might have been hidden amongst all the spam.

The forums haven't been very active for quite a while as things have shifted over to Facebook groups. Please don't take the lack of replies as a lack of interest in general.

Head over to the Burnerworld Facebook group too!

Welcome aboard!

Polish it up as good as you can. The crank you can try the coke and tinfoil trick.
This will be one super survivor. Is there a history around the bike?
Go and check ozbmx. survivors are sometimes just as valuable as a fully restored bike with NOS parts?
Why you may ask? Because each and every mark everywhere have a story to tell of its history. Not something you find everyday.
Please don't stop. Keep up with the updates here as Im not on facebook :D

As what's been said mate....keep us updated with your resto Facebook isn't for everyone ;) (not me anyway lol)....Pro Burners are a lovely bike but very fragile especially around the gusset area but yours looks ok 8-)

It's a bike I wouldn't have wanted to build though (when I were into restoring bikes a few years back) as to get spec parts for these is like trying to find that pot if gold at the end if every bloody rainbow lol.....
