An outstanding issue from my accident back in May is the SV's tank. The bars bent back and dented the tank. I wasn't too bothered about it but, because there was some bare steel, I had to do something before it rusted.
A possible "cheap and nasty" repair would be to fill the dent and find a nice sticker for the tank.
Another option I thought about was a complete re-spray. I've never really liked the colour of the bike and, since it's a single colour with no coach lines this would make things easier. I'm not going to do this at present but might in the future.
|I got this set of stickers from eBay. These are associated with the late racer Barry Sheene. I put his No. 7 stickers on the tank and continued the theme with Donald Duck on the back of my helmet.|
|The stickers were tricky to apply. They don't fit smoothly onto a surface that curves in two directions. I had to put some cuts in the stickers to get a fit.|
|The SV is currently laid up for the winter. When I post about my adventures next year you'll know why the SV has the tank stickers.|
