    I want to stress this is really paint with harder and the metal flake comes in a powerder, so gas won't damgage it after its cured, in the first few days or so gas or ...... can put a haze to the clear that will never come out but this tank won't be in use for a week or so or ever longer is i build a custom 7005 alloy frame.

    wow thank you !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    i would love to build something like that but i can hardly ride a MB with the cops charging me with 5000$ fines and stuff so mine going to look more like a bicycle. were i live there is a lot of areas to dip and the problem is people started running and no one has got busted doing it however if a cop even sees one running or not he's all over it.



    now on my cr500af its a diffent story

    It would look awesome, better than any painted p-nut tank.......unfortunately it really is stuck on the bike and cannot be removed without destroying it.

    Tanks for the offer tho :D

    thats a really good deal. the hard part about power coating is you have to to get the item to bare metal, witch is not to hard for lower end bicyclys ie strippers but with good pant it can be a out right cazy to do. with my cr500af the frame was easy to polish day 1 wet sand 400 day 2 800 day 3 1500 day 4 geen day 5 bule polish and it was better then chrome but not as hard of a tone to it how ever the swing arm had some kinda coating that no sovent, even hemptane,no stippper,no acid 33%hcl or base lye would take it off, i had to glass bead it for about 5 hours to get it off and that made it really hard to polish


    anyways spraying the power and bakeing it is something a 8 year old girl could do but preping it can be easy or days of work.

    at my work to get my tank done it would be about few hours at 100.99$ an hour so around 350-400$ and to power coat a bike frame it would be about 2 hours + powerder witch is CHEAP so about 230$

    right now im playing with the idea this winter to build a 1500cc 6 cyclinder two stroke chopper using 2 kawie H2 engines and getting a extar 2ed cyclinder case and using it to spline the 2 canks togetter in the in side so it would be a in line 6 two stoke then using 6 cr250 fmf pipes and winde them throw the frame.

    hears some pictures of my cr500 af

    i won't post finsihed pics for legal reasons (ilke to run a lot and only my self and my boss now what my bike looks like) even my boss dose not have know what deacls my bike has right now, it spends it life coverd till i want to cause .................... brnot

    Knowing Scotto, its a 212cc predator. That's his race bike. A monster indeed.
