Altering my gas tank
« on: December 20, 2007, 12:53:00 AM »
I think that my Sixty 5 is pretty like it is, but I'm curious about adding the knee rubbers, like on the deluxe model. I love that look, and I notice that with my solo seat that my knees are always rubbing there. I have the green touch up paint on order. Can anyone tell me what that would entail?

I installed some kneepads on a 65.  I just cleaned the surface with wax and silicone remover, and alcohol.  Then I used J B Weld to stick them on.  Be sure to measure them out first, and use a removable marker for reference points. Put a light coat of it on the pads, and the tank.  Let them set a few minuets, and stick them on.

No pictures.  Was another guy's bike.  They were the 60's knee pads from CMW part number Z90557.
