Matte Black crash bars

Postby flymo3 » Tue Apr 26, 2016 10:54 am

Hello!

Have a white 2T "last run" on the way,
Have bought and recieved matte black crash bars for the bubbles which even though I can't see it on the bike yet look blimmin' awesome :)

My question to anyone with a knowledge of matte black is: How best to maintain the finish? It arrived with a scratch but that will rub out and easy to spray (been refunded some money from dealer I bought it off.)

Any special things I should be aware of? What is best to clean them with? :')

Many thanks in advance!

Hiya, no idea what quality the paint is but I've owned a few matt black cars and they can be a bugger. I usually just let nature take it's course haha. I found soap leaves marks. so maybe a water wash then wipe with a damp cloth? If its not too bad, just a wipe or brush with a cloth?

I've also ordered one of the last LML 2t's in red. I was told the boat could / should have arrived on Friday and then another two weeks to repackage and PDI. Can't wait !!!

Thank you :)
So basically I won't use anything other than water as I guess it leaves greasy film like marks otherwise

Yay! Last run buddy! Mine arrived last Friday off the boat to a dealer in Scarborough ready for delivery tomorrow to me in Essex, they were PDI'ing yesterday and noticed a big scratch on the frame so rejected it and are having another one brought directly from LML surplus ready for delivery to me this Friday!

Am new to this scootering thing - gotta learn to ride it as yet! Never ridden geared ;-)

Nice to know someone else has bought a Last Run
