Bike Detailing/Restoration service?

I'm thinking about buying an 02 model bike but the thing is dirty as . Dude never cleaned it. It's got oxidation on the fork tubes and tones of grime and brake dust on the wheels and brakes. Is there a detailing service or any other advice to make this thing look new again?

If you are anywhere near the north side of town and you are willing to pay for the service, I could probably take on the job. We buy and sell bikes fairly often so we've pretty much got getting them nice and clean down.

There's a ton of tricks to getting a bike clean. I could write a book on the subject.

I have a buddy that details the heck out of bikes. But some oxidation will not be able to get off. Those particular parts will have to be taken off and refinished
Riding a Duc is kind of like, you may get a cramp in your wrist, but you keep on trucking because it feels so good.
