Bart Black bikes are tough to keep up to your level of detail just like black cars it takes alot more attention. I have a black 62 Pontiac, cadilac Escalde XLT and Ford F250 I spend a small fortune on car washes and my cars are still dirty all the time. Dust , water spots and just the polution in the Ca skies keeps them less than steller. A bike is even tougher. The price is worth it as black looks badass when clean and smooth

Bartkim, thats my black bike, dgr2 very kindly posted the photos ( many thanks dgr2) as I tried and failed many times. I'm very impressed with the quality of the paintwork, other than a few light scratches where my knees rub against the tank after 6k miles it still looks good. The top photo was taken the day after I picked it up but it was a little dirty from the slush on the roads.

I guess it was just the reflection of the snow? Anyway, I left out the word 'awesome' for the bottom picture (I went back and added it). Good to hear about the quality of the paint. I've had a few black bikes in the past and keep saying I'll never do black again, but damn they look good!

I'm really like way Flanny's turned out - very sharp!

must go ...

Tom/Greg - do you have GPS coordinates for this place/route you could email:



I'm working a LONGGGGG weekend in the hopes I'll finish up a project & be able to head to Mexico for a few days of trials nuttiness...

The 640 has seen too much commuting lately ... have to get it out on some good trails again ... Greg, I know you're still down for the time being ... Tom?

I did a search for it (Motul shine and go)and found the best price and bought 10 cans. Should be around $6.99 per can.
I found a few sites for you

http://www.kevinscycleracing.com/crbikecare.htm

http://www.motul.com/uk/produits/mot...che/index.html


http://www.triplecaution.us/products...ndGo_8188.html

http://www.motul.com.au/product_line.../others13.html

I don't know what it'll do to the bike but it makes it look awfully purty. I keep a can with me for a quick shine if my buddys are late.
