Tank update

The tank is now painted brown and the gas cap black. I havn't used any clearcoat for the finish of the tank, I have just polished the brown paint - like in the good old days : )

The gas cap is often seen on old race bikes, because of the quick access - This one I found in the airport at an MD80 Diesel driven ground power unit.

Looking goooood :-)
I like the look, very vintage. Are you planning to put the sticker on, just the way it is?

Hi, Bjørn
Thank you very much ;-)
No, I'm not planning to put any stickers.
Actually I tried to put on some thin 3M stickers, but it was really not a success!

I would really like to have the vintage 1934-1935 "flying diamond" logo, but I don't know what's going to happen yet - I would like to get it painted, that would be the best result, but a water decal may also be a possibility...

Yesterday the 27/10 I handed over the gastank to Cay Brøndum - he will tke care of the rest of the paintjob of the tank.
