PostSubject: Custom paint/ extra plastics source   Mon Jun 30, 2014 11:08 am

I have a friend who is a top custom painter here in LA, so It occured to me to get a 2nd set of; tank skins, fenders, etc. and go for a unique color. I'd keep the stock Teni green skins, but have the new color too!
Where can I buy a set of plastics to mess with? (I know I'm nuts)

i have been considering that option also.. there is a black tank on ebay for $499 right now and some white body work also .. but that second set idea has a pretty steep cost. I was also thinking of doing vinyl wrap instead, just unsure if they can do a really good job on the gas tank.

Cool. I don't want to mess up my stock parts, as they are mint. Vinyl wrap? Hadn't thought of that at all. Interesting. Thanks!

Various bits and pieces turn up on places like Pinwall from time to time. Do be aware that although outwardly similar the 1100 and 1200 tanks are different.

Actually in thinking about it.. since you have a matt paint job vinyl wrap might not be an option.. with paint I would just wax it up so it would have a chance of coming off.. I would definitely talk to a couple people before wrapping your flat paint.

Thanks Pete!

I am going another route...in what will turn out to be a few years probably I will have my aluminium parts done for the devil. I am just copying the stock parts in polished al. so far I have a gauge bucket and trim panel, tank top and bottom, and the tops of the two side pieces roughed out now, I want a year off from work to piddle...beating sheet metal is good therapy. The goal is to replace all the cosmetic plastic with polished aluminium...yeah like I am ever gonna finish this project....

That stinking ign switch well is a major mother, I have done that about 6-8 times now and still cant get it, I am a real amateur metal former,  Mad

I didn't know that. I thought they were the same as I fitted (no hook up) a 1200 on my 1100.
Good to know.

The side/coil covers are different between the 2 bikes I discovered.
The 8V ones have smaller openings for the valve covers...

The main difference is the location of the drains and vent nipples but I don't think the 1100 tank will fit on the Hi Cam because of this. Whether the reverse is true I don't know.

I could also be completely wrong but the tanks are different.
