Microfiber towels are cheap as hell these days. They used to be like $5 each but now you can get them for a dolla at your local "Family Dollar" or "Dollar General" store :thumbsup: Or if you iz a member of Sam's Club they sell them like a dozen for $6.50 They really help reduce swirl marks left behind by regular towels and even flannel cloths.
As far as the products I use Meguillar's wax cuz it don't leave no powder residue like Turtle Wax and you can even get that cheap for like $3 at Family Dollar rather than paying like $8 at Walmart.
As for tires I use that Black Magic stuff only for shows because it runs and attracts all kind of dirt if you use it on a daily rider. For a daily rider I use the Turtle Wax Tire Black stuff. It usually works for a couple of weeks and doesn't attract dirt :thumbsup: I also like the Meguilar's Hot Tire or whatever that aerosol spray is called.
For gold plated parts I only use these gold polish cloths I get from a local jewler. They're like the only thing safe for gold. Do NOT use chrome polish on your gold, it will really reduce the life of your gold.
Also do NOT use car wax on your chrome or gold. Car wax is for paint finishes NOT plating. I heard of a homie where his lil bro thought he was helping by polishing his chrome with car wax and it screwed up his plating.
I am not sure about how to polish chrome with pinstriping I'd say use your regular chrome polish but avoid the pinstriping as much as you can.
For whitewalls use that Bleach White stuff. Its like in a white spray bottle with a red label. Its the only stuff I've seen for white walls and sells at Walmart and probably other places but I remember seein it there for sure.
Armor All will also work good on your tires.
I think that about covers all types of products I can think of for now

2 cents in what? the grammer and spelling machine? Because that's what you need to do gangster, we are talking about cleaning a bike, we're not talking about who's 'OG' and who's not 'OG'. Clean your bike wiht whatever you have, I found that metho works well from cleaning shit out of inside your spokes but it will fade the white paint on your white walls if you use it to get rid of fat scuff marks. Use what you can, because if your bike is clean you're still representing the scene!
at the moment most topics have me talking shit to someone, because these 'gangsta' ass clowns keep coming and talkin shit :uh: shit's annoying.Originally posted by mackinoz@Sep 13 2005, 04:26 AM~3803619
