LOL. Thanks for the reminder.

...an additional small dent was also added next to the large one pictured above, thanks to my bike being knocked over by my local friendly garbage men.

You probably can pick up a tank on ebay for less than trying to get the fixed and painted.

I picked up a new R6 tank for only a $100 dollars and SVs are even more common.


Ill believe corporations are people when Texas executes one.

The last time I paid for paint (years ago) it was $250 a pannel in a rural (read that as cheap) part of PA.

I cant see painting even close to being cheaper than an ebay tank

I had a huge dent in the gas tank from when I lowsided and getting new paint was really expensive. Something like 200 so I just said fuck it. I sanded it down and put primer on it. Its cheap and arguably its not obvious that it has a huge dent. I'm going to put a huge bandaid over the boo boo I dont think its necessary to repaint it. Do something creative with it for cheap and be done with it. Once you dent the otherside get a new tank...
