I want to resurrect my old bicycle (haven't ridden it for 10 years) and have found it in the shed. The chain is rusty and the tyres flat. Can I do anything about the rusty chain without having to replace it? What steps should I take to get it up and running again?

Answers :

1. buy a steel brush then brush out as much rust as you can from the chain.2. soak the chain to used motor oil for at least 30 min. 3. then try brushing out more of the rust then apply "singer" all purpose oil to it...enjoy!!!
