    Now you see? THAT I LIKE. the alloy goes so well with the silver and the metallic side covers. When I see naked alloy tanks with a black or red bike, it looks disjointed. That's why I said paint it, Nigel. Now...as far as that translucent black...whoa yea...over some ghost gold metallic flames and the classics Norton pinstriping and logo. Big bucks, but hey...its not my money.

    So do they market tank pads to cover paint bubbles?

    Hey, ordered a tank pad early this week. Transparent pad with black text identical to Nigel's. Bit naughty as my Norton commando isn't an anniversary addition.

    Living on the edge ;)

    Seriously tho, transparent would be best (like Ben) as then there’s no colour matching issues...

    I take it back, I searched for "Motorcycle tank fabricators UK" and a host of small businesses pops up on the list - some good work on their websites but obviously no 961 tanks yet. Prices are about 50% or less than Norton on average but I can't comment on quality - you wouldn't complain about painting these!

    No, no, fairs fair... 50/50 it is...

    I’ll send you a monthly balance breakdown. $0 x 50% = $0.

    Minus my $25 admin fee.

    So, that’s $25 please...!
