When Gottlieb Daimler and Wilhelm Maybach invented the first combustion powered motorbike in Germany in 1885, they forever changed the world of transportation. That innovation continued in America in 1901 with the Hendee Manufacturing Company, which later became Indian Motorcycles. Another well known name; Harley Davidson entered the market in Milwaukee in 1903. What started out as a novel invention became a passion for many and created a subculture all its own.
Today that subculture remains alive and well all across America. The world of motorcycles is as diverse as the bikers that ride them. There are many different makes and models of motorcycles on the road today, from Buell to Yamaha, choppers to trikes, and they all hold a special place in the hearts of their riders.
Kip's Auto Detail offers the same professional quality results for your motorcycle that you have come to expect from our automotive detailing. We have the specialized tools, an excellent knowledge of motorcycles, and an eye for every detail which come together to transform your daily driver or weekend toy back to its original “showroom shine.” We have detailed all different motorcycle brands and styles.
A typical motorcycle detail starts with a thorough wash to ensure all areas of the bike are clean and free of bugs, tar, and rubber. Then, all painted surfaces receive a wax treatment to remove the dirt below the surface of the paint and reveal the truest color of the paint. Next, all swirls and fine scratches on painted surfaces are polished to ensure a swirl-free finish.
On heavily chromed motorcycles, such as Harley Davidson cruisers, we polish all chrome finishes and aluminum to a very high luster to provide the best appearance possible. Finally, all surfaces will be treated with a durable ultra high-quality polish to preserve the beautiful finish.
You may have just pulled your bike out of winter storage or for whatever reason the bike needs a good cleaning. Kip's Auto Detail should be your first and last call!
