Paint chips
so my bike is a 2006 with 55,000 miles on her. she is starting to show her age, cosmetically at least. i have various stone chips in my paint work, now there is just too many. on top of that I discovered a chip on the corner of the fender and there is rust! not happy. so what is the best cheapest easiest way to fix paint chips. not those scratch remover polishes, they do not work.

RE: Paint chips
personally id try one of those "touch up pens". but thats depending on the size, quantity, and location of the chips..and... the base color of your bike. OR if you have a custom scheme youre probably SOL. back when i gave a d@mn about my pickup truck id use one on all the chips on my front bumper/ grill and it worked ok.

if there are any reputable paint shops around your area im sure you could get them to color match some paint for you. and maybe you could apply it using a Q tip?

im pretty suprised by the rust on your fender... both my rear and front fender are plastic. but then again maybe just the custom version has those? i dunno
