  1. I got a Scooter bag off eBay a few weeks ago and it was in very good condition. It just needed some brightening up. Thanks to the lovely ladies here, I was told that the bag didn't need a bath, but just some Apple Conditioner and Brasso.

    So I took their advice and the bag looks great now!!! :biggrin: The Brasso took 99% of the tarnish out on the turnlock and the Apple Conditioner brought some life back into the leather. This bag was from 1994, so it's 16 years old.

    Before:
    Dull, dry leather ~

    After:
    Shiny conditioned leather and polished hardware ~
