    Rust on the fork? I assume it is rust forming on the chrome area? Where there is a chance it will go pass the oil seal?

    If you intend to keep the bike for long, either you do not compress the rusted part till where the oil seal is else your oil seal will give way as a matter of time
    Servicing a small bike's fork is usually considered expensive because the cost of buying a new set if about the same
    Even if you manage to remove the rust, it will come back because the chrome is no longer there

    If you manage to remove it and the chrome is still there, it is not rust to begin with but just dirt accumulated

    NEVER, NEVER, use any form of abrasive material on the chromed parts!
