Can I bring my bike to you for fitting ?

Yes you can.  If you want to wait while we fit your decals, All we need you to do is call us to arrange a time and day for you to come.  If you can't get time off work during the week, you can drop the bike off on a Saturday morning and collect the following Saturday.  We are not normally able to fit full kits on a Saturday I'm afraid as we are only open 09:00 until 12:00 and a full bike kit can take up to 5 hours to fit

Do I need to lacquer over my decals?

The short answer is "No" you don't need to.  All the materials we use are intended for the purpose and a perfectly suited to the out door life. Not having them lacquered in means that if you later damage a sticker, or simply change your mind, you can easily remove or replace them. However if you do want to have your decals lacquered in, there is no problem with this either.  Our decals are used by dozens of paintwork companies all over the world using all types of lacquers without any problems.

What should I clean by bike with?

You can wash your bike with most car or motorcycle shampoo's.  The things to avoid are polishes with abrasives in like T-cut or Auto Glym. Although both these products are excellent, they are not specifically designed for use on vinyl and contain elements that will damage the printing on your stickers.  If you are unsure , test the polish on a spare decal.   We recommend "Smart Shine & Seal" by Smart Bike (This product is the only polish specifically formulated for use on motorcycles and vinyl decals, in fact we helped develop it ).  We do stock this polish and can send it with your order or on it's own.  Current price is 4.99 for a 275ml bottle.
