It can be very expensive to restore a chopper bike to look like new. Don't let that put you off. If you clean each part using wire wool (brillo pad) on the rusty bits and get any grease off it can look quite nice. The problem comes if any parts are missing. If the bike is complete then start by polishing it and getting it rideable.

One of my fully restored Choppers, 1970 MK I. this cost nearly 1000 to get it into this condition
