...I decided to add the chrome trim around the gas tank. I'm quite happy with it. It looks much nicer than just having that ugly, metal tank lip there. Very easy to do.

I have the silver and grey 06. It looks good. I think it finishes the tank. My cuz has the basic black and it really looks sharp.

Looks Good. You can buy this chrome trim at your local automotive parts store. They sell it to go around car doors. A large roll of it is about 9.00 so the price is right. I also used it to trim out my fenders.

^^^ Yep, cost me $9.99 for an 18' roll at AutoZone. I wish all the mods were that cheap!

Looks good! You can use the same stuff around the bottom edge of your speedo housing too. I did it to help hold my tank panel in place, but I like the look so much that I would have done even without the panel.

I didn't check to see how much I used. I just unrolled some and held it around the tank and added a little bit more just in case and then cut it. I started on one side, where the tank goes under the seat.

don't just stop @ the tank.....

around fenders (I realize AF1, has fender tips) - around w/s, if you have one - around edge of stock radiator cover

i think it looks good on the all black tank rim. makes it 'pop'

When I did my wife's bike, the white one with a windshield, I just bought chrome door trim. Pepboys didn't have different sizes of that trim.
Let us know about these different sizes, if they are big enough, could they be used to make homeboy fender tips?

Everyone, watch out for Condolini when you have these trims on your bike.
