I've never seen that combo of the grey and black version, paint code #786



Time to hit Google

you're missing the writing on the yellow part

Thanks Dan! It was more work than I expected but worth it. It was fun trying to get the tank to look just like my old tank which i need to put up on Craiglst.

that was my friend, John...
he has the same rig
we had them done by DMC in Enumclaw, WA at the same time
on THAT occasion, he had it SHIPPED there because there was a leak in the fuel pump and UNsafe to ride/drive (as the case may be with a sidecar rig)

he is a member here

anyone ..?
When I did my adventure tank, I had a friend do it all blue then cut paper strips in white, held on the tank with fridge magnets and moved them around until I was happy and masked around them.

Thanks LL - sneaky! the magnets idea wouldn't work with the 2010 plastics - but some thoughtfully selected and carefully applied temporary glue would. I like where this is going ……

Winter will soon be here in BC, Canada, so this might be a little cold weather, weekend project. Either doing the whole tank, with the 'blue and white' style pattern - but using my existing red as the base, with alpine white as the accent.

Where would I buy that skinny black pin stripe for marking off the boundaries? Big box / auto store I guess?

I painted my Touratech all blue first then masked it and then painted the white. Put on the pinstrip and finally clearcoted it. Paint is available from Colorite.
http://www.colorrite.com/

For the pinstrip I went to O'Reilly's Autoparts and bought 1/8 inch. What ever one you get test it with the clearcote first to make sure it doesn't bleed.

It also helps to have a friend who knows what he's doing to help out.

Here's another big tank pic taken in Lassen park

Very nice non-factory paint!

Congrats on the "new" bike!

You could use an overhead projector on table or stool that rolls. Put pattern on the screen and roll it around until you get something you like.
