Here's my 2008 883R with 32k miles on it. Just used a rattle can to get some color on it yesterday.

This is what I did. I painted my 4.5 tank to match the color of the stock tank. I changed the appearance as I wanted an older look ,with the '61 emblems, etc. But I matched the paint to the off white of the original decal.

Picked up the 4.5 gallon tank for my 2007 1200R from the painters and got it installed last week. I have black emblems for the side that should break up the sea of yellow. Hope to have them installed soon
