Ugh! I've been tossing and turning at night trying to decide between making my bike a ratter or a high class metal flake work of art...

DAT TANK!...

makes the decision even harder, the patina on that metal is sexxxxy! and high quality nose-art never goes out of style!

This covered in a black candy clear would do it for me. Not heavy, but just enough to mute the edges and really bring out the black.

Great thread as I look for inspiration on what to do with my bike to really make it my own.

A few more I found, sorry if they are duplicate photos...

This was posted on the thread of photos that need no explanation... Should be here also (unless I missed it...)

Cool

My used 3.3 tank arrives on Monday... now to think on what to do with it... powdercoat it, just paint it the same color as the 2.1 tank, custom paint job, no paint (strip it to bare metal)... will be a tank to swap when I want to increase riding range...so not getting rid of my original tank...

Enough typing... here are the photos that I have found today... No to look at the whole thread again for inspiration...



























These are stickers... but great for ideas...
