Well - I just checked the Maier website. It appears, after some inquiry, that they have added a few pics of their product installed on a TW200. EDIT - I hope this helps some of our members here.

If you're asking, I'd love to see a run of the yellow color. Followed second by the olive color.

Yellow speed block yztw

We can make that happen. We've received a lot of requests for Yellow, so we might make it a stock color.
SteveG put up this photo of a custom set you guys had made for rugged radio, was wondering if the yellow you mentioned in the list is the same? The yellow from this picture is perfect.

Unfortunately, we don't make fuel tanks. Different manufacturing machines.
Bummer
I would love to have a tank to match the plastics ..
If I have to paint the tank I might as well paint the plastics..
That way I get a match for sure...

Oh me oh my they're all so beautiful 😭 I'm definitely drawn to these three for my bike, I had been just embracing all the white BUTTTTT..... that blue especially UGH love it. I'm thinking I could pull off that blue and keep my existing tan bits + paint my frame tan 😎 I don't like the way my natural tank looks next to the white panels, it makes it painfully obvious how ugly the natural tank color is, I think literally any other color would make it less obvious.

@TWBigBlake I gave that photo a quick n dirty color correction to hopefully give you the best representation of it's color, provided your monitor isn't off.

Some additional food for thought for you guys: If you offer the ability to completely change the look of the TW200 by replacing the plastics, but don't offer a solution for changing the appearance of the tank, it either forces the owner to A) Paint their original tank to match (which is not ideal if they want to have the option to switch back to the original look), or B) Purchase a 3rd party plastic tank (which likely won't match your plastics in color), or C) Not buy your plastics.

Any way you look at this, without having a solution to the color of the tank, it may limit the sales of your plastics in colors other than those which match original TW200 colors.

Some ideas:
A) Manufacture tanks that compliment your plastics (You already stated that you didn't want to do this).
B) Vinyl wrap for the tank?
C) Matching plastics that would somehow cover the OEM metal tank.
