Aluminium Tanks vs AVL bikes
« on: December 24, 2008, 10:14:10 PM »
Just picked up my bike today.  My dealer was somewhat perplexed that the tank didn't fit.  He finally made a couple of brackets and figured out some rubber grommets so the fork-stops won't hit the tank too bad.  You might consider probviding these items with tanks for other than iron barrel bikes?

PS- it would be nice if I had a choice between red or gold lettering. 
      Just saying...

If you want different decals, just send us the ones you don't want in exchange for those that you do want, no problem

Haven't had a chance to ride it yet- I have to put my own gripos and mirrors on bikes.  Also checking out the owners manual.  Looks like frequent look-sees similar to my old Indian.  It's a sporty-looking little package though, I must say. 

Mr Kevein, I already ordered the red deacls from the store-
1) How would I go about cancelling that order?
2) Where would I send my current decals for exchange?
