The Scotchbrite Look By MeanStreet.

MeanStreet has probably the world’s most extensive line of custom front ends. And it’s even more true today with this new 56 mm inverted front end called Blunt offered in wide or narrow glide version. But the part I like the most is the fact that you can buy it in Scotchbrite finish, an industrial look that a few custom builders have chosen on their one-off bikes, ever high tech or retro style. Of course, Meanstreet will also sell it to you in polish, in chrome, in black or contrast black. But a Scotchbrite look is so cool that you should think about this theme. Bonus? No polishing and no fingerprints. Think of it on all your aluminum parts. MeanStreet Products..

    The new trend. Scratching, not polishing.

    Hey, burnout. There is an art of scratching: always complete the full part, scratching in the same direction, with the same…Scotchbrite.

    Fingerprints will show up on a Scotchbrite finish, and often end up being a dark gray fingerprint. The nice thing about it is that Scotchbrite will remove them.

    Pretty cool. Other manufacturers are going to copy this scotchbrite finition idea…But Meanstreet took it from custom builders.

    I don’t believe the idea is very original. Look at how many “brushed nickel, bronze, copper” finishes you see just going to Home Depot, Lowes, Menards, etc., in the faucet areas, and bathroom hardware. The finish is very similar. However, I think it is a great idea to bring it mainstream into the motorcycle world. What a better way to open up one more way to help us make our bikes a little different than everyone elses. I don’t know about you, but I’m a fan of never having anyone say to me “Hey I know a guy with a bike just like yours!”

    Thanks for sharing this with us Cyril.

    Something from Hell Paso that I like…If it’s good enough for the mainstream it’s good enough for us.

    That’s funny!!! I’ve got a bike going right now that is a scotch bright frame. Looks great but it’s certainly nothing original. Kool yes. New no. C.F.L.
