I've got a vintage Peugeot racer bicycle that's needs some restoration. It's in pretty decent condition given its age (1970-1980s), but a everything could probably do with a good clean and degrease and oil to get it looking really good again.
The frame isn't too dented or pitted which is good, it's the commonly worn parts that need some attention. Parts such as the crank, derailleur, rims, spokes etc that have the odd scuff, bit of rust or bits of metal that are looking pretty mucky and has lost their lovely metallic or mirror finish. the stain less steel or to get the chrome looking shiny and mirrored again?
What would people recommend to start cleaning these things with? Any thing that's good for getting rid of all that muck and grime?
