2007 Harley-Davidson FLHX Streetglide Detail

I had the opportunity to detail something a little different from the usual, a 2007 Harley-Davidson FLHX Streetglide. Normally our shop is known for detailing automobiles, but on occasion I get called to do something different. Whether I’m detailing Marine, Aviation or Motorcycles, each of them require different techniques and must be approached differently. In the case of this Harley-Davidson, I had to change gears from my approach to detailing automobiles. I gave it a good wash and degreased it without using high-pressure water, I used Griot’s Engine Cleaner for greasy areas and Sonax Full-Effect for the wheels. The rest was cleaned with Griot’s waterless spray on wash. I then started with paint correction on the painted surfaces and lastly polished all of the chrome, which to me is what really makes a bike like this stand tall. Here’s some pictures of the detail. – Mike Cardenas
