Leather saddle bags?

Unread post by Jesse_James » Sun Jul 21, 2013 11:44 pm

What should I use to protect these bags from the elements? These are 100% leather bags I don't want to go to hell.

What should be done about polishing chrome exhaust pipes?

Leather saddlebags, rub them with mink oil to waterproof them.

Chrome exhaust pipes rub them with Bar Keepers Liquid Cleanser when cold.

Mink oil will waterproof them but how about protect them from the suns rays?


Will Bar Keepers Liquid Cleanser also be good for the chrome on the engine?
