did a motorcycle (Harley-Davidson) show in Ocean Shores,
Washington this past July. (2002) Had a great time. Fixed
a lot of leather for folks there as you can imagine. Lots
of shoes and boots. We also did some rubber molding
on the gas tank of a FXDX Harley Dyna-Glide Sport.
Apparently, nothing normally makes this stuff stick. I
did this on two of these bikes at the show.
also had several people come to our booth to have the foam glue
back in their googles.
was in Yakima, WA last week (at the Central Washington State
Fair) and a guy there who has a Harley told me he takes the glue
everywhere with him. His belt broke - he repaired it with
the glue and he rode 80 miles on the repaired belt - back to
civilization. A real happy camper.
Miracle Glue will do a great job
repairing a lot of things on your bike. It is the same
base as Super Glue or Krazy Glue but the solvents have been
distilled out. Being pure it is much stronger than either
Super Glue or Krazy Glue and it also dries clear and flexible.
It also won't melt things like neoprene. But the really wonderful thing about Miracle
Glue is that you get to use it all. Most customers,
storing it in the fridge, are keeping the glue for
around three years. It won't keep forever but
you should be able to get three years out of it. If
you are going on a trip take it with you, it will come in handy,
just don't leave it out in the sun. When you get home put
it back in the fridge.
We do all
sorts of car and hot rod and motorcycle shows with Miracle Glue.
It will do most plastics and rubber - no problem. I've
even had a couple of people tell me the have fixed fan belts in
their cars with Miracle Glue. You can combine different
material - you can repair the weather stripping around the door
of a car window or gaskets. Most of your bike plastics.
Light lenses. And remember that it dries clear and
flexible so if you are repairing something like a clear vinyl
window, Miracle Glue won't discolor or go brittle like Super
Here are a
couple of emails I've received about Miracle Glue:
some at the Seattle Bike Show yesterday and have already used it
with great results on a couple items already.
