I knew it would happen sooner or later, but I was hoping for later. I have my truck, van and bike in the garage along with two bicycles and two Schwin electric scooters. I guess when one of my kids, or one of their friends, was getting a scooter or bike out of the garage they scraped my gas tank on my bike. My first reaction was being pissed but I did expect it to happen. Any quick fixes out there? It isn't terrible and I can live with it but if I can make it be gone I'd sure like to. I'm thinking of wax or touch up paint. Any solution would be much appreciated!! Ride safe and enjoy every mile!!

depending on where the scratch is you may think about some decal to cover it. there is alot of places to buy some. i have some pinstripping on my tank and i ordered some new decals to cover the shadow logo on the sides. if not then you can always get it painted professionally or at a high school body shop class might be willing to do it for you.

greg, if you can feel it with your fingernail, forget "buff out" not going to happen. A lot depends on color, clear coat , ECT. Sometimes wet sanding will reduce paint blems. and follow up with clear. :wink: Painting is a ART. :roll:

I have a few indian feather stickers on my tank from just such things. I consider my bike a toy and not a work of art. That way I don't get too broken up over the nix and scratches that come about from time to time.
