Stained paint job

#1 Unread post by dan0074 » Thu May 16, 2019 8:14 pm

Hi
Last summer I had my Harley 883L Sportster parked on my lawn. I fractured my ankle and couldn't put it away, let alone ride. The bike stayed there for 7 weeks. I had a cover on it but it still got stained with dirt. I've washed and scrubbed it several times. Does anyone kow how to clean it?

What areas got stained? I’ve had good luck with goo gone as well as magic erasers.

Thanks I'll try that. The gas tank and fenders are stained.

Good luck! How did dirt get on the tank and fenders whole covered? Was this from the last ride and just got stuck on good?
