    Billet Machine Tank Badges for our TW's

    Hello riders

    I've been wondering if a billet machines tank badge for the sides of our tanks like Harley and others offer
    would be a neat thing to have available and if anyone would be interested in them once I got some made?

    I'll begin working on this in October and show photos and pricing.

    Any ideas on what you'd like for the badge?

    If you have the means to do so then do it!! Just find a way to affix them to a plastic tank then send a set to TWilight to test. If He gives it a thumbs up then your set for life!

    Just need the right adhesive.

    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    use heavy duty(gray or black) double sided tape. 3M and others sell them in rolls of various sizes.

    what renny10 said

    3M makes an excellent double-sided, low-profile foam tape called VHB (very high bondage). It's absurdly strong, adheres to virtually any surface, suitable for wet/dirty environments, and actually strengthens over time. I worked as an installer for a sign shop my last couple years of high school, VHB was our go-to for anything we couldn't use hardware for.

    Yes, definitely part of my maintenance tool box inventory. Just like yourself, I use it for hanging signs and other various items. Very strong and at the same time, takes some patience to remove with a thin sharp flexible scraper. I think this is the same stuff they use to attach rear spoilers, body panels. we get these in 4-5" diameter rolls. But, they are readily available at all hardware stores( red vinyl strip/ gray tape)

    I would be game to get a pair, depending on what it looks like! (1 for my wife's 2013 and 1 for my not yet have TW ) .... ha! ha!
