FAQS

How do I attach to my bike?

We recommend silicone adhesive. Silicone adhesive is very strong, yet flexible,
and easy to apply. Complete instructions come with each piece. Silicone
adhesive can be found in most auto and hardware stores. We like Permatex.

Where can I get instructions to attach to my bike ?

Right here! Click on this link to go to our instruction page. If you want to print
out just find the set you need, copy, paste, and print.

Can I use other kinds of adhesive?

The short answer is yes. But, there are some pieces that we would not want to
use anything besides silicone. Some pieces that are open like the spider webs
are going to have some of the adhesive ooze out when put in place. The beauty
of silicone is that cleanup can be done after the glue sets up by picking it off
with a tool that will not scratch metal (wood or plastic). Something to keep
in mind, super glues and epoxies tend to get brittle and do not take vibration
as well as silicone.

How to I clean and polish?

Any quality metal polish used on metal parts on your bike will keep everything
like new. Powder coated pieces can be cleaned and waxed just like the
painted surfaces of your bike.

What kind of metal do we use?

Depending on the type of product, pieces are cast from a tin based or zinc
aluminum white metal. Advantages are the great amount of detail we can put
into each piece and the fact that pieces will stand the test of time since there
is no potential of the base metal bleeding through the plating and causing pitting.

Who manufactures our products?

We do. All of our products are designed, developed and manufactured by
American Cycle Accessories. Plating is done locally. We believe that America
must have a strong manufacturing base and we will always do our best to
purchase American made goods and supplies.

Do we do custom one of a kind pieces?

If we did do it prices would start at $500.00. Why beat around the bush.
Custom work does not come cheap! Right now we are so busy we would not have
time to do any one of a kind custom pieces.
