Seeing all the scratches and nicks in my tanks, tells me all that would be a waste of money.
But, both of the painted tanks pictured above look awefully darned good, for street bikes.
It might be a waste of money, but I think It'd be nice to give it a fresh coat every couple years. It won't last (at the rate I take dirt naps), but I do appreciate a sharp looking bike. I can't imagine it costs too much to be painted.
