I would have posted this in the Restoration/Car Care Forum but since this is bike related......

Brent @ vintage-vendor.com just finished the tank on my '71 Norton Commando. It's pretty sweet! I just hope I can do the tank justice by restoring all the other parts to the same level.

Oooooo, that looks pretty.

I'd be tempted to just hang it on my wall. <<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/grin.gif

Oooooh! Nice!And Black too.
Makes me want to get to work on the
Bonneville (almost).
You do realize that you'll have to
have everything else on the bike up to
the same standards,don't you?

I do. ...I know that'll be the hard part....also resisting installation of the tank before the bike is totally complete. I can picture it now, an errant bolt or socket smacking the top of the tank. :cry:

That seems eminently sensible to me. You'll eventually scratch it, but it would be a true shame to do that before you've even ridden it.

Wrap it up carefully &amp; put it
in a safe place,until you're ready
to install it.
