Kawasaki KZ650 cafe-racer. Wheels polishing.

Remember my remark about the choice  of wheels’ colour in one of previous posts? With my intention to make them look even more resembling vintage sport drum’ brakes, the only answer for the question was “polished aluminium”. But Honda CBX550 wheels hubs and covers are made of cast aluminium and they, unlike the engine covers, were never intended to be polished. As first choice to try my polishing skills I chose the rear hub,  the part with most complicated surface.

It’s quite a lot of work ahead, but looks like my polishing skills passed the test…
