I'm sure I've seen something about this on the forum :confused:
When I had my tank refinished I ensured the original locations were used as the bike was totally untouched from the day it was made.

Tank transfers

Measurements did'nt always seem to apply in the factory.
I have seen pic's of a Shadow 2 days after it left the factory, and there was 1" difference verticaly between the 2 sides:D Must have been a Friday afternoon bike:rolleyes:

With many thanks to quick admins who e-mailed me my password I was able to get into the members section of the forums...and find the section on transfers..but I cannot print the pafe "you do not have sufficient permission"..I have tried saving it as a .jpeg..again no luck..
Now I understand why this is so - it is to prevent the unauthorized copying of the material...but how in the devil am I to get this information to the person painting my tank?..

One must remember that the transfers were applied "by hand". No factory template.
No one saying "You're off a couple of thou. Nigel.Concours judges will be arguing about this 30 years later."
A friend of mine has made some templates off of original bikes.When people ring him up and complain that something is "off". He replies "Not for the day of the tank that we copied".
