Hey guys I have a question, are there and tanks that are easily interchanged with the cb650c tank? Mine is missing its emblems.. I took it off because I want to paint it but the old marks will still be there.. is there any suggestions you guys have to cover those emblem marks up or a tank to change to? I was thinking bondo maybe?

You could bondo them... I'd be worried about the thickness of it though. Might be best to do in a few layers.

Or, you could find emblems. I think I kept the tank from my parts bike... I'd have to check. Send me a message if you're interested.

I just repainted mine.

Your tank looks amazing! I went with bondo, I did 3 light layers now I'm painting it with a metallic speck red, I'm not sure if I should leave the tank at that or paint my bike's name on the side or what.. but I wanted to steer away from the stock emblems for a more custom look to it
