Rear rack and band-aid

Slapped a rear rack on and put a band-aid on the, uh, boo-boo (dent).

It's a shame about the dent, but at the same time, it adds a bit of character to the bike!

Have you tried a suction cup to pull the dent out? I've done it before on a car and it works great. Put the suction cup on in the middle of the dent and pull it off as hard and fast as possible. Worth a try

Sometimes dry ice will pull a dent out of a gas tank. Make sure you wear gloves.

Here in Texas where hail is part of most thunderstorms we have hail damage repair specialists and they use tremendous vacuum and suction to pull dents out of automobile panels.

One of the above might be worth a try when you consider that the average motorcycle tank sells for U.S. $500.00.

Blot, Where did you get the rack that you show in the pic?

I've tried two different dent poppers; suction cup and the super hot glue one. Didn't even budge. When winter comes, I'm going to take the tank off and a friend is going to hammer it out from the inside. A oem tank replacement is $330 from Babbits. I'm just going to leave the dent; it serves as a warning to others lololololol
