I'm restoring a '72 cb450 and I've started cleaning the front wheel. It has lots of rust eating away at what I'm guessing is chrome. I'm wondering if this severe type of rusting is repairable or if the wheel is even safe to use. The rust hasn't gone all the way through but could it?

Here's the wheel before any sort of cleaning. You can see the large rust patches.

Here it is with the tire removed and after a quick scrubbing. Lots of damage to the chrome.

Just cosmetic damage. The spokes probably bear looking at more.
