All depends on what you intend to do with it.Is this specialized hardrock worth doing anything with or is it destined for the tip?
Look what you would have missed if you had skipped it .Well I’m very surprised, the bike has cleaned up well. The forks still have a bit of tarnish on them and I think the chrome has gone but it’s only in a small area. Once I cleaned and lubed all the gears they are spot on as well. Needs a new back tyre and if doing a proper job a new set of forks but it’s now functional.
