Why not polish an alloy tank then give it a coat of epoxy clear coat?
Modern Powder coating is far superior to paint or epoxy in durability, chip and chemical resistance, and with ImageFusion they can infuse any graphic or photograph into the coating. I have been talking to a local shop that says they can do the norton tank logo and graphics with a clear coat that will be perfectly clear and seamless. I will just have to have exact dimensions of the logo and placement on the tank.Carbonfibre said:Why not polish an alloy tank then give it a coat of epoxy clear coat?
Jean Thanks, I am loving how it looks so far. Sorry that you aren't enjoying cleaning the grease pit, I had to do that once and I could not eat in a restaurant for months after. You can come down and help any time Is it getting Cold up there yet? It got down to 60F /16C last night and we had to get bundled up, for me that means socks and shoes and long sleeves in the mornings, still shorts its not cold enough for long pants yet.Jeandr said:That is a great looking bike, makes me wish I was working on a bike rather than cleaning up a restaurant my daughter just bought.Jean

YES Heat shields are definitely in order...... still working on the design of the exhaust I have 2 Supertrapps and and un-decided if I'm going with 2 mid pipes or 1 high pipe. but after seeing Kenny's bike I fell in love with the look of his Maney exhaust.Bernhard said:Hope you found some alloy to use as heat shields on the exhaust pipes :!:
Given time you will soon be dumping those clip -ons, unless you are going to race it.
