Chrome

Hello all, I am a new member to this forum. I just bought an '05 Roadstar that is all customed out. I would put pics in the gallery but it seems to be under maintenance. Anyway, I need advice on what products to use to make my chrome shine. I bought Megwire's Chrome Wheel stuff but the bottle says it is not safe for motorcycle wheels. Therefore I am a little concerned with spraying it all over my bike cuz I don't know what will happen. Anyone have any suggestions?

chrome is chrome, its gonna shine anyway, just keep clean, you can not make chrome shine any more than it does now! if the stuff your using is abrasive it will scratch the chrome leaving spider lines in it, so watch out what you use!!!!

i think you just made post of the month. a response to a 2 1/2 year old post by someone who hasn't posted anything else on here since. still, it's good advice for anyone else who may have similar questions.

But if your bike is just all red or all black, then I'd leave it at home anyways.

For me there isonly one product for CHROME....Eagle One. It goes on nd stays on and gleams like the light on a clear puddle. Romantic no? Eagle one also cleans as it put on. it is not a spray and wipe product. I got those and they wor ok but not like Eagle One.
Try it. YouŽll like it a lot.

My feet on the pegs and lots of time to go where the road leads.
