Tested by Bruce Dunn Time tested one ses­sion What’s good When you’re restor­ing an old bike, some­times no amount of el­bow grease is go­ing to shift 30 years of grime and de­cay, and if you’ve got old parts made of soft met­als you’re of­ten lim­ited with how harshly you can treat them. Which is why aqua blast­ing is so good; us­ing a very fine glass medium sus­pended in high-pres­sure wa­ter vapour, aqua blast­ing gen­tly strips away grime with­out re­mov­ing any of the metal be­neath. Th­ese are a se­lec­tion of var­i­ous com­po­nents from my 30-year-old project Yamaha SDR200 and Hard­core Rac­ing were able to trans­form them from shabby to as­new, in less than a week. Aqua blast­ing is suit­able for com­po­nents made from alu­minium, bronze, ti­ta­nium, brass and cop­per, and leaves a satin fin­ish.

What’s not More ex­pen­sive than shot blast­ing, but gives a gen­tler fin­ish.
