Some of this story isn't new, I've posted about it before: So after a nasty high side near the very end of summer, I was left trying to figure out what to do with the horrible tank dent I had. A lot of other parts were broken, but they could all be replaced/upgraded relatively cheaply - unlike the tank. So I took my stuff down to the UPS store and shipped them from Tennessee to California to Brad @ Speedzone Paint & Bodyworks.

I couldn't have been happier with the pricing, customer service and final product done by Speedzone. I'm a happy camper, and this thread is purely to share my excitement and say Job Well Done to Brad.

Here's the before:


Here was the general idea I had:

The paint is so incredibly glossy its hard to show it well in pictures. I can literally look into the tank, the paint seems that deep. I'm impressed!

Oh, my error, I thought I saw the metal referring to the Retro Logo that is pictured, and I was thinking, wait a minute....

Well I feel like a dumbass. The metal Name plate is going on the seat cowl at the back so nobody behind me mistakes this thing for a Buell. [thumbsup]
