Since I currently lay my bike in the back of my 1995 Volvo wagon, I decided to add some ‘tank protection’ so the truss rods don’t do too much damage during transport.
Went to the hardware store and picked up some 3/8” ID, 1/2” OD clear plastic tubing.

Also decided to paint the area between the ribs on chainguard, like it was done stock, grabbed a ‘Sharpie’ brand paint pen (oil-based paint, not marker ink). Once it cures, I’ll run some steel wool over it to clean up the lines, then decal, then done!

Glad to see you practicing safe forking by using protection.
Looks great too!
The paint on the guard ribs really makes the chrome pop more too.

The "Lowco Liner" logo looks professional. Real good work! Perfect font choice.
Got it made at Lettering.com
I went with upgraded marine vinyl it was around $15-16. It’s the second set I’ve had done by them.

Classy final touches on this classy and a little bit sassy cruiser! Under that custom tailored black suit , silver cuff links and neck chain, lurks a mob 'king pin' looking for his next take over.

It definitely has that hitman / body guard / “brute in a 3 piece suit” flavor to it.
Here’s the Finished thread

Too cool. Fully sick rides gents. I have to get to Savannah some day. I did business with a big time Savannah music icon years ago but never visited.
