The ugly side of posting pics is I can only include pics that you own, as in you took or have permission to use, in the wiki.

Thanks for that information. I did a good bit of research and didn't turn up much but I did manage to get it into the Sportsterpedia. I am assuming that's your picture Lugster? I'd love to put some in the bike gallery.

I found a thread from crw012 with a pic with his tank on the bike on XLF and the same bike in HDForums with his posting "2012-Peanut". He hasn't posted here or there in a few years. I'd like to see some more pics of that bike. Nice!

Default Show your tank decals

Both of these are the stock graphics from my 1983 XR1000 and 2009 XR1200
I did paint the gas cap black on the XR1200, but the rest of the tank is stock.
Oops...forgot how to post pics from my iPad, sorry!
