    Zero clearance, runs off propane. The garage stays warm all winter, then just crank it up an hour before i go out to play in the garage and it nice and warm.

    Sounds great, I've never seen that done before.
    Question: Where did you get the material to do your bike? I've heard of these coatings being available in cans but only in black.

    By the way the Uni-cycle you have hanging behind your mtn bike looks like it would hurt to ride. :D

    I've done two bikes in "Auto Zone black bedliner spray stuff", both came out beautifully. Park the bike in the Arizona sun for three hours, and the painted parts were still cool to the touch!

    MotoMike and Texas Biker, does the bedliner on your tank reduce your gas mileage any? I had read on another board someone thinking it would, but never saw an answer. I think your bikes looks hella good like that, I have an older Honda I am thinking of doing the bedliner to the sun damaged plastics.

    Not at all. I can't imagine the textured coating causing significant drag issues at sub-80mph speeds. However, the GS has has the aerodynamics of a small barn, anyway.

    It's a cheap and durable way to fix your scratched/scraped/faded plastics. I wouldn't bedliner a new bike, but it's perfect for that ugly POS bike you plan to keep forever. :)

    i take care of my bikes but i ride them for what they were made for and here in the north east Pa. its rocky and every now and again gravity takes over and the bike has a new scrach in the tank so this was a way for me to make the bike look new again and also i've heard it's east to repair if you do scratch it.
