Harley Ironhead Frame Cleaning

Life's a bitch...   Thank God there's Harleys...

The frame of our 1973 Harley Sportster XLH Ironhead carried some 35 years worth of grease and of dirt. To get it clean we took it to the carwash. Those high-pressure shampoo sprayguns do miracles, and the grease and dirt are recycled in an environmentally friendly way.

Here's how the frame of our Ironhead Sportster looked like after the carwash:

We are waiting for the arrival of the parts washer which we will use for cleaning of the smaller parts of our bike.
