Speaking of painting... I have been working on my gas tank.
I decided to try to work with my tank, rather than buy a Clarke tank, for a few reasons....
1) Probably the most important reason... I think Honda REALLY got it right with the shape of this tank. I just think it looks RIGHT.
2) The cost of Bondo, sandpaper, and paint is still about 25% of the cost of a Clarke tank.
3) Fun project.
I might upgrade my fuel capacity with a Clarke tank at some point in the future, especially if I start really doing some trips with this bike. We'll see.
By the way, this is the look I am currently thinking I will go with on the tank:
I am open to suggestions.... although I can't promise to take any of them!!
