The vac-bag is the only good way (or in the living
) becouse the hollow spaces are breathing salt- moist air in when cold and breathing dry air out when warm thus leaving salt water in your crankcase and petroltank.
Here an extreme, a sad and a funny story.
In the 70's whe had VW trikes to collect wood and ships items of the beach after a storm, after 3 winters (without cleaning) the salt had burned a hole in the 10mm thick gearbox.
A friend has a 1904 Ariel 2 1/4 HP in first paint, living 50 yards from the sea and not having any heating, only a heating blanket in bed
We are seeing it loosing more paint every year
The police thought it was criminal to have the blinds closed during the day so the Mobile Unit went in at 5 AM only to find a few motorcycles under a highsleeper and my friend in bed
