That chain drive brake rotor is a sweet setup. Real clean. What's under the rider seat? Tach?

As for rust on chrome spokes, if none of the various chrome cleaners are working then it's better to swap to new better spokes next time you have the tire off anyway. But they need to match the rim and you want to know what air seal method is being used. If the spokes are hard to find they can be re-chromed along with the wheel. But they look good from the usual distance, at least in your pictures.

You can always get the rims powder coated.

Sweet ride! “Never dull” by eagle is about the best for light rust in chrome that I have come across. Not perfect by 95% better quickly, just keep polishing until it turns black then wipe clean.

Bought never dull today. It has taken a lot of the rust off. Not looking for perfect just cleaner.

The one and only time i used never dull it put swirls in my new chrome. Never used it again. Probably good for old chrome. Blue Magic works good for a metal polish. White Diamond works great on polishing aluminum.
