Four wheels move the body. Two wheels move the soul.      ·      Sometimes it takes a whole tank full of fuel before you can think straight.      ·      There are drunk riders. There are old riders. There are NO old, drunk riders.      ·      You don't stop riding because you get old, you get old because you stop riding.      ·      Catching a yellow-jacket in your shirt at seventy miles per hour can double your vocabulary.      ·      If you still have fuel in the tank, you’re not lost yet.      ·      Patience is something you admire in the driver behind you and scorn in the one ahead.      ·      There are two types of people in this world: people who ride motorcycles and those who wish they did.      ·      If you can't get it going with bungee cords and duct tape, it's serious.      ·      Midnight bugs taste best.      ·      Whatever it is, it's better in the wind.

How to Install Leather Motorcycle Floorboard trim

Motorcycle Floorboard trim
  1. First, you'll need the Barge All Purpose cement we included in your shipment or other product that works well on metal and leather. The Barge is an excellent product for this application. This product will not harm your floorboards or the leather. Any excess can easily be removed.
  2. As you can see, the Floorboard Trim is one piece, approximately 26" for rider and 24" for passenger in length. Each end of the Trim will attach to the inside of the floorboard, between the floorboard and the bike. The two ends are not designed to touch, and there will be several inches of uncovered floorboard that is not visible (by your many admirers).
  3. You can get an idea of how it will look if you drape the Floorboard Trim around the floorboard, and you can then decide approximately where you want the first end of the Trim to begin on the floorboard.
  4. Ok, ready? You're going to carefully spread a moderate coat of the contact cement around the floorboard where the Trim will go. I recommend using a q-tip or two for spreading the adhesive. Also apply a thin bead to the top of the Floorboard Trim where it will attach to the floorboard. Wait 7 - 8 minutes after you've applied the glue to the floorboard, then begin to carefully and firmly press the first end of the Trim against the now tacky, floorboard, working the cover around until the entire length of the Trim cover is firmly pressed against the floorboard. As you press, immediately adjust the top of the Floorboard Trim up or down a little wherever necessary, to be a uniform distance from the top edge of the floorboard itself. You are simply making sure it looks nice and even as it goes around. CAUTION: the glue can become so tacky that where the Floorboard Trim cover touches it may be difficult to adjust. If you line it up incorrectly, you'll have to peel off that portion and lay it straight. It should stick just as well the second time if you do it immediately! It's best to let this application cure for 2 hours before you start showing off!

Avoid harsh cleaners or chemicals. Clean and condition the leather with Chilhowee Buffalo Butter or other quality cleaner/conditioner, following the instructions on the package. To avoid fading from the sun's UV rays, use 303 Aerospace Protectant on a regular basis. If your leather becomes faded, you can use a quality black dye or other fine boot crème to restore the color.
