CALIFORNIA CUSTOM CLEANS MOTORCYCLES

WRITTEN BY MARK HINCHLIFFE - IN CLEANING · GEAR/ACCESSORIES — 9 JUN, 2015
 

Motorcycle cleaning products that promise miracles usually fail to deliver, but not California Custom.

The sole importers and wholesale distributors of California Custom cleaning products in Australia for the past 20 years recently sent me several products to test at just the right time.

My usually pristine Triumph Bonneville T100 was looking very second-hand after I took it for a ride down some rough dirt tracks.

However, the pictures show it has now come up a treat, thanks to California Custom products which genuinely seem to work as promised.

Not just clean, but gleaming! Even the tyres look brand new.

First I had to give it a wash with just plain water to get all the dust off. That left it looking reasonably clean, but streaked with water marks, brownish tyres and stubborn grease and tar spots on the exhaust, engine and frame.

It was then the turn of the California Custom products to turn that dull-looking machine into a concours-standard showpiece.

The products we “road tested” are:

- Purple Metal Polish ($22.50) for the chrome and metal.

- M-Ron Glass ($22.50) clear coat cleaner and wax for the paintwork.

- Spray Shine ($20) quick spray wax for painted, powder coated, chrome and helmet visors.

- LVC ($11.99) leather and vinyl conditioner for the vinyl seat and sissy bar pad, leather pannier lids and rubber fork gaiters and tank pads, plus any other bits of rubber on the bike.

- Tire & Trim Protectant ($20) to use on tyres and plastic trim.
