It was a very nice day today temp about 65 degree F,so decided to get out the Blue Diamond polish and Dremel and do some polishing on the wheels of the Wing.They looked like they have never been done.Just got one side of the front wheel done,even with the Dremel it was pretty tough work for a old man.Maybe over the coming week I can get front and back done.The pic on the left is before,the right is after.I do think I will have to polish them a couple more times before I get the shine I'm after.(1991 Wing).

Nice. I've just been using muscle power and the aluminum is tough to keep looking good.

I have a Mother's Power Ball and it's easy to use. Pop it on the cordless Dewalt and away you go.

Would a pneumatic die grinder be a good option for a polishing wheel?
I don't see why not,as long as you keep it moving to avoid burning the metal, but I think I would try on a like piece of metal before using on your wheels.And thanks fellas for the comments.

When I was looking over my bike with the seller I thought , " That's odd . The rear rim is painted black ". What did I know, never had a Goldwing.
