Just purchased a Slipper Sam alloy tank from TabClassics for my 01 Bonneville.

Instead of having it painted I'm planning on leaving it as is but wanted to put Triumph decals on. I wanted to ask if there are better options out there besides scouring eBay. Newbonneville & Bellacorse don't really have many options.

Thanks!

I cannot offer any info. as far as stickers - But I have to say, that tank looks like a piece of art! NICE.

There are the later model Triumph badges that are stick on. Damn, that's a pretty tank!

Thanks! Took almost exactly a month to make, handmade in England. Still waiting for it to ship but got the finished pictures this morning. Haven't gotten the finished product yet obviously, but emailing back and forth with Richard at TabClassics has been great and I can speak highly of their customer service.

If your still looking check out The Image Works in the UK. They can make pretty much make any design and size even made a set of GSXR 750 style graphics for my old DR 750! They also ship anywhere in the world.Ted and Graham are friends of mine but please don't think this is an advert.Mention me and you may even get discount.

That looks really nice, is the pin striping a decal too?

I just went to a Auto shop and bought 2 rolls of pin stripe tape in two different widths. I also made a template out of paper to the shape I wanted, and I used a hair drier to heat the tape to prevent crinkles when making the rounded corners. I just cut to length for 90* angles.

Took me a while to get it all situated! I had to relocate my ignition back to stock, which sucks, then cut a good 3-4inches off the front of my seat. The M bars I have are too aggressive to lean over the tank without having rear-sets, going to have to change them to something else.

...Bellacorse don't really have many options.
Actually, I can help. I have a huge stash of decals I use for special projects. Call.

True enough I don't show a big tank decal on my site as it's not something I sell very often. I don't add parts to the site simply for the sake of having the biggest catalog. That's like shoving a rolled-up sock in your drawers. :)
