    What sort of voltage and what dilution ratio of the soda/water did you use, please?
    it's not a bad thing till you throw a KLR into the mix.

    I used an old battery charger, so 12v and up to 5 amps. In a 30-40 litre bath I probabaly mixed in about a cup maybe a bit more? I just followed a few you tube examples..

    While it would pay to shop around - 5 litres at Mitre 10 - $57, 5 litres in TradeMe - $155 - to sink a whole Landy chassis would be $$$$

    And some people just use white vinegar, but results may vary.

    People swear by Molasses as well.
    before you give up on electrolysis I might lend you what I used as an anode.

    I tried the evaporust and it worked well but am interested as to wht you have used for an anode as I am going to still use the electrolysis?…
    meantime….I cleaned out the hubs, sandblasted, bead blasted and fitted new bearings, rims and spokes! I have started!

    I will have a dig in the shed tomorrow.
    I have a lot bit more room as the C33 is out of there now.
    but the gist of what I used was a punch plate so it had massive surface area not sure if it was SS or just high chromium but although Google stuff say not to use SS it worked extra well for me.
    The other thing is make sure you are using a old old battery charger as they dont ramp down the amps. Like modern ones do.
    because we are on well water, our water likely had a high mineral content and I used plenty of washing soda the tank I used was a old fridge laid on its side With hungry boards and the thick tarp liner this was because the RD frames are quite bulky

    Yeah my charger does ramp down! I am just using re-bar and it seems to do the trick. I have a 200l plastic drum and just swapped the frame end for end after a couple of days. I will have to see if I can get a different power source,,,,,

    Charger on a battery perhaps?
    I have a power supply so I can set the current. I mean it works but you still have something rust damaged underneath. That said my Stinger was literally named Rusty (and I don't name bikes).
    Don't you look at my accountant.

    I suppose a cheap-ass arc welder wound down to minimum current would still be to fierce?
