Since I have experimented with doing some polishing, I was looking around at things at my bike that can be polished. One thing that stuck out bigger than sh*t were the mounting brackets that the gear shifter and the brake lever mount to. Anybody already tried this? The forward controls that Terry is pushing look great but they would be too long of a reach for me so I am going to compromise. One question I had was whether or not those stock controls have a protective coating on them to keep them from getting tarnished. If you have any experience with these items, bring it on. Otherwise, I will post pics after I am done. Tips, Tricks, suggesitons?
