Spray-on truck-bed liner Adventure Tank

I saw a post of a 640 Adventure with the fueltank painted with spray-on truck bed liner. Now I can't remember where it was. I can't find it. the search doesn't turn up anything.

Can anyone remember whose bike that was? I have questions about prep.

Thanx

Not sure what your motives are for wanting bed liner paint. but.. if extreem stick and peal resistance along with a durable finish are your goal I would suggest and epoxy paint. In both cases (the bed paint and an epoxy paint) the durability will depend more on the prep work then the product. Read into this a good epoxy and a good bed paint, Not bed paint and basic spray paint. With the surface properly cleaned and preped I wold more consider an epoxy paint over a Bed paint because generally the bed paints are designed to be rough, it increase the friction and traction of stuff in the bed. some comercially applied bed paints like Rhino Liner can be down right prickly Not something you want to constantly be rubbing your legs on.

Anyway My .02 worth.

Thanx KellyK7

I wasnt planning on doing the whole tank like inte's bike, but exploring the possibility of covering the areas of the tank most likely to hit the ground (or a tree in inte's case. My knees are inside Axo articulated knee guards anyway, and I'm looking at possibly painting a front edge instead of using a carbon fiber tank protector. I'm just in the exploratory stage here. I'm not locked into anything, just looking for good ideas. Thanx for the help.

Lets see picture of that bed liner in use on motorcycles

Did my tank and faring today. Tank in orange with the bottoms in black, Faring in orange on the bottom but black on top. I sanded the tank down and put a 1/4 inch strip of duck tape down the front and after i rolled on the bed liner i removed the tape and now i can see how much gas a have in the tank I have pictures but don't know how to post them. Anyone want to post them for me? I would like to see what others have done as well.

Go to Photobucket and get a free account. Download to their site (relatively easy) and then click on the "img" tag below your pictures. It will say "copied". Go to the reply page in Adv Rider and click on the "image" icon. Paste the copied alphanuemeric stuff and click "submit reply"

Zero clearance, runs off propane. The garage stays warm all winter, then just crank it up an hour before i go out to play in the garage and it nice and warm.

Sounds great, I've never seen that done before.
Question: Where did you get the material to do your bike? I've heard of these coatings being available in cans but only in black.

I do that too.


By the way the Uni-cycle you have hanging behind your mtn bike looks like it would hurt to ride.
