    Usually the lower part of the forks are treated to a clear coat and after a while the clear coat gets small chips from road debris and the metal under the clear starts to corrode a wee bit
    the only way to clean it up is remove the clear coat so that you can then polish the metal to keep it nice and bright and shiny a new clear coat would need to be applied or regular polishing will be required
    paint stripper can be used to remove the clear
