Working in NYC, it was bound to happen, a truck took a corner way too sharp and knocked my bike over. Damage: bent front fender, small dent it tank, bent rear brake pedal, internal steering lock, and few other scratches. Long story short, I was able to locate the company, got a quote from the dealer to repair damage, and got reimbursed from their insurance.
I’m currently debating what must/should I fix, and what I could live with. I kind of like the matte black over the gloss of my current bike and was thinking of taking the opportunity to switch my bike over to matte, since I plan to replace the tank, which is the most expensive part. Small problem, if my wife ever found out I spent a few K on changing the look of my bike instead of paying off some CC bills, and don’t think I can describe what will be done to me 😬 I’m now considering a possible speedmaster tank, if it won’t void the warranty and the dealer will be willing to do the conversion, or switch to the cranberry red tank. Does anybody even know if I can use this tank on my bobber black?
