    Going to throw out some info real quick to give a quick update on my shovel project and show you how you can really bring some old aluminum back to life.

    Im polishing up the rocker boxes by hand. It takes time and elbow grease but its damn worth it and saves the roughly $200 to get them professionally polished.

    Go to your local auto parts store and get some wet to dry sandpaper. The grades I used were 600, 800, 1000, 1500, 2000, 2500 and 5000. Next, get some real good aluminum billet polish such as Mothers brand.

    rocker start


    as you can see, the rocker boxes are 34 years old. This crap wont come off with just a simple polish wheel, its in the metal.

    Start with the 600 grit, get it wet and start sanding.

    rocker first step


    This first sanding might get you scared a bit. Dont worry, just make sure you get a good even sanding. Keep going, stepping up the grades as you go.

    The pic above is at roughly 2000 grit stage. As you can see, its getting better. Keep stepping up the grit until you get to at least 2500. Then I finish it off with 5000 for the real fine finish.

    Finally finish with the Mothers polish to bring out the shine. I was loosing light by the time I took this pic but as you can still see, its a whole lot better than the original.

    I only did the front part of this one rocker box. To really get the job done best, you should probably take the rocker box off the bike and get every nook. That will come next for me.

    What methods have you used to get a showcase shine on your old parts?

    Today marks the ten year anniversary of Indian Larry’s passing. Larry is a legend and appeared to be (I never met him) a genuine and laid back guy. He hired and mentored guys like Paul Cox and was an influence on custom builders everywhere. I recall he was once on a small show you might remember, called Biker Build Off, and he stated that a real motorcycle should have at least one spoke wheel. He also noted that he preferred motorcycles to look mechanical instead of hiding stuff, such as every wire and cable. I like that, I want my bikes to look like they are a machine.

    Well, it appears that I am not a web developer… Going through the growing pains of my small business and learning how to do everything myself takes time and money. Both of which I do not have. But, I do have supportive family, friends and customers that make Juggernaut Cycles better every day. I hope this blog format can help to add some personal connection to my projects. I’ll update with new projects, items and hell, might even do a tutorial or two to show you how to make your scooter better. Any advice or tips to make the shop better are always welcome. What would you like to see in the future from my small shop? Leave comments below.

    Thanks for the support!
