    you could always paint it? or have it powdercoated. Either way i would at least clear coat it after you get it fixed for some protection.

    Buy some White Diamond out of Yankee Custom trucks....I got a 98 gsxr with a polished frame that was out side for about 2 yrs and it came right back to a mirror finish.The stuff is Awesome...water spots and all.....or try neverdull.....if not wet sand high grit and move down and polish you can't mess it up.

    oh, then i guess it's just me that sucks. plus i have pig spotter mirrors too, so i'm bound for harassment.

    to stay on topic, i never looked into polishing my frame for that reason of needing to re polish. i looked into chrome dipping my swing arm, but $400 plus labor isnt worth it for a bike i wont keep for that long.
