Bike Show Prep 1970 Triumph Daytona

Richard won his first “Best in Class” award after our team made it shine like never before.

Three days before an upcoming vintage bike show in Florida, Richard called Biketailing asking if the team could help prepare his beautiful 1970 Triumph Daytona for competition. Richard and his wife have been participating in competitions for a while, but this time they wanted to take it up a notch to try to win for the first time. We were completely captivated by the passion Richard and his wife have for vintage bike shows and how much they love their motorcycle.

Getting the Motorcycle Ready for the Show

We decided to support them completely and became their prep team overnight. For the next three days, we delayed a couple of projects that could use the extra time, and we got to work on this vintage beauty. 

Bike show preparation requires a highly targeted approach to treat each material with specific care. When working with collections or show bikes it is important to maintain the integrity of original materials and bring out their natural beauty without damaging any surface.

In this case the process included:

  • Paint correction
  • Ceramic coating
  • Chrome preparation
  • Aluminum preparation

Winning Best in Class

Richard was ecstatic when he saw his Triumph Daytona looking like it was being driven out of a showroom in the 1970s. But nothing compares to the moment we received the happiest phone call and a few pictures after the vintage bike show telling us that they had won “Best in Show” for the first time. Richard and his wife were incredibly grateful for helping them reach that goal.

Those moments are what fuels the team at Biketailing every day, we are your motorcycle care support team every step of the way.
