I spent nearly £4k restoring my bike; I'm not willing to get salt on it.
it washes off with warm soapy water whats the problem   i spend £25k on a new car and it sleeps out in all weathers winter and summer
But where will your car be when it's 61 years old?
still on the road if someone restores it and avoids salt on  the roads *????*
Actually, I should have said 122 years since my bike is probably at least as good as when it left the factory, will likely be valued more highly by successive owners and only does a few K a year. So there!

just to rub salt in it not if a well known breaker gets his hands on it so there

My apologies for starting this. It was a just a question I wanted some better advice on. Thanks to those who have given me that advice.

All those quotes are making a very pretty pattern on my screen!
