These are a pair of Indian Chiefs that I recently had the great pleasure of refinishing in a unique color combo of Horizon Blue with India Ivory that complements the lines of the bike quite well.

The warbonnets are a water slide decal that is printed on a laser printer. It makes for a very thin applique that I apply and then clear coat over. I have done work similar to this in paint and it is very labor intensive, basically just a lot of time masking and waiting for paint to dry. With these tanks I went ahead and sprayed my two tone colors on the tanks and then cleared them. I then wet sanded the tanks completely in 600 grit sandpaper and then the decal gets applied and four more coats of clear on the tanks.
