Lol, that is funny chit.
Dunno if you have stored the bike for winter or if you are still riding it? If you are storing it for a couple months then maybe something I learned about from a local old timer who's vintage BSA looks like the day he took it home new. Every winter when he stored it he gave it a thorough cleaning (never with a hose), made sure it was bone dry, then covered the entire bike (anything that was metal) in a very thin film of plain old motor oil. In spring he took a dry shop towel and wiped it down and got as much off as he could. I would imagine the first few rides of the season were a bit smelly from residual oil burning off but I'll tell you, it certainly did work.
There wasn't a single spec of rust anywhere on that bike. Not on the frame, spokes, any chrome, nowhere.
