So i just picked up. A fit benny 1 off a friend for $25. (he needed cash quick and didnt want to build a bike anymore). And i have intentions on rawing it and rusting it. That being said, what would be the coolest/easiest way to rust it. I was thinking just letting it sit with some moisture on it and put it on and ride, but im sure there are other ways and cooler things too do. So i figured id throw it out there and see what your guys opinions are.

Theres a thread on here somewhere with different techniques. I know mustard and lemon juice can be used for some cool looks.

Raw it and ride. Itll probably come out with a really genuine patina if you ride like that for a while.

Just remember to clear coat it at some point. You can get matt laquer so you won't be left with a shiney look
