EN­GINE FIN­ISH

BIKE (UK) - - THE DEALER -

Royal En­field don’t use en­gine lac­quer and un­like early Ja­panese bikes the fin­ish is bare al­loy. We call them oily rag bikes. To keep them in good nick use a rag to pol­ish wheel rims and en­gine cov­ers. They do need pro­tect­ing in the win­ter, though. Cover in anti-cor­ro­sion spray such as ACF50. Don’t pres­sure wash the bike come spring be­cause wa­ter ingress can rust steer­ing head and wheel bear­ings.
