At Workshop Hero™ we repeatedly hear from customers how they love our Metal Rescue™ Rust Remover Bath and Dry Coat™ Rust Preventative for their motorcycle applications. Whether it is for cleaning up a rusty gas tank, removing rust from their bike's chrome parts or preparing their bike for winter storage, Workshop Hero™ products take the work out the biker's workshop.

Motorcycle rust prevention and rust removal is serious business and recently we joined forces with several motorcycle distributors who are "heavy hitters" in the field. Workshop Hero™ products are now available to dealers through Tucker Rocky and Western Power Sports.
