There’s nothing that gets us amped up for riding quite like highly polished chrome and a clean, leather seat. That being said, we don’t all have time to detail our motorcycles the way we’d like to. At CCM, we know you’re busy, and when you do have some extra time you’d probably rather get out on the open road than clean your tires. That’s why we offer expert detailing services as well as used motorcycles for sale in Elmhurst, IL.
Whether you ride a Harley or another bike, there is a good chance you enjoy showing it off whenever you stop off for food, fuel, or anything else. Making sure it’s clean is a good start. However, years of riding will take a toll on the paint finish, chrome, and even the leather seat.
If you’ve been wondering about what steps you need to take to bring your bike back to life, we have the answer for that – just one. Bring your motorcycle in and we’ll take care of the rest.
From removing the built-up dirt and grime from the wheels, to perfecting the shine on the chrome, our team of motorcycle experts will transform your road worn classic into the road warrior you remember. Our services include complete paint restoration, chrome rejuvenation, engine detail and dress up, seating and luggage treatment, and full wash and air dry.
► Complete Paint Restoration
This service includes the complete removal of any light scratches, swirl marks, paint oxidation and staining on all the painted surfaces. We use a 3-step paint cleaning system which includes compound buff, polishing, and protective wax.
Deep scratches where the paint has been removed or damaged significantly will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. We will provide you with the best options for repair, and once we have your approval, we can touch up the area by filling it in with matching paint. Lastly, we will apply clear coat, and buff the area to ensure the scratch blends in with the surrounding paint.
► Chrome Rejuvenation
Beginning with the wheels (which are usually the grimiest parts), we’ll pre-soak and thoroughly wash away the loose dirt. Then the chrome rejuvenation process begins with removal of any light surface rust as well any pitting and boot scuffs on the pipes and heat shields. Following up with the acid wash treatment restores original shine and luster to your chrome wheels, engine, accessories, and trim – you’ll wonder why you didn’t do this sooner.
► Engine Detail and Dress Up
We begin by fully degreasing and deep cleaning the entire engine. Then, along with the chrome rejuvenation, we replace any missing paint with high-temp ceramic touch up paint. Lastly, we shine all black surfaces restoring that factory-new appearance you just can’t miss.
► Seating and Luggage Treatment
If your seat, saddlebags, or storage pouch are looking old and faded, this treatment process is for you. We’ll clean and condition all the leather and vinyl surfaces with a restorative conditioner, restoring them to their original glory.
► Full Wash and Air Dry
We will thoroughly clean your ride with a neutral soap after the paint and chrome restoration processes are completed. Finally, we will air dry to make sure nothing mars your newly restored bike, and prepare it for delivery.
