    They sell them at CG brand new for $100 every now and again. A friend of mine has one, they're not bad.

    Does anyone have any recommendations on where I could take a steel gas tank to get a dent taken out of it and have the area cleaned and primed?

    I would take it to one of those paintless repair places.

    That's where I try first too.

    Now how about someone to paint a tank? I have one that is steel with no dents but needs a paint job.

    Ask Skip. He had a guy that he gave me. Did an very good job on a big 640 ADV tank. It was that really tough plastic so not as easy as a metal tank.

    Morning crew! I have a brother and father coming to visit in January and they were asking about renting a couple of bikes to explore the area. Is there somewhere I could get some dual sports or adventure bikes lined up for us to take out for a few days?

    Morning! What kind of size/performance/application are you looking for for them?

    You could do what I do, buy some bikes that need a little work, fix minor problems (been sitting for years, needs carb cleaned, oil changed and fresh gas), enjoy them then sell for a profit!

    Thanks Skip, Ed is one of 2 really good painters I know of that do bikes. I actually had him do a bike for me many years ago. I was fishing for any other names but will probably go with Ed when the time comes. Still need to figure out the what BMW decals or color pattern I want on a white tank.

    Does it turn into an espresso machine when you want it to be covert?

    I live near downtown and I think I just got my bike ready to rock, I'd like to get it off the street and stop pissing off the neighbors and hit the dirt. Is there anywhere nearby? I had heard of a route from the Tucson mountains to Marana but can't find it. I've been mountain biking here awhile so I know my way around slightly but all that is non-motorized. Thanks for any help.
