I work with a lot of Harley riders and they always talk about using something called Mothers Metal Polish or something. I guess it's supposed to make 'em shine really nice.

Generally I use Wenol. It does a nice job on all of the metals.

My Dad always uses semi chrome and to wash it i think he uses (please help me if i am wrong) SJ100. Also If your chrome is'nt that dirty I use a wading polish by Eagle 1 it looks like fiberglass insulation in a can and you just rip a piece off it and it already has the polish in it works great.

there's hope in the words and emotion in the eyes
it's so easy to be misled by the savvy gentle guise
and like fools we trust the delivery
but it's all just drunk sincerity

I just use a microfiber cloth. It does a great job. I dont use any solvents or any anything, just the cloth. But I try not to let my bike get that dirty.

Nevr dull seems to work pretty well too.

American Racing Wheel makes a great Chrome cleaner (gets out oxidation and other chrome damaging elements) and then apply a wax to it to blings after that application
