Took The Harley Davidson Tank Badges Off

Not a big fan of chrome brand badges, not even Harley badges.
I always remove them to really show off the paint.
So much easier to wax and keep nice as well. Everybody knows it's a Harley already.
I'm going to have my chromed tank badges painted Vivid black.
Then I might put them back on.

I'll get some outdoor pictures up soon.

Here is an old picture after they were removed.

Just blackened it up some more.
The paint cleaned up real good, has a great looking finish.

I have ultra limited black and chrome badges on mine. They may look really good on your bike as well.

Why not try red tank badges to match the other red accents.
