    The covers I have are BD and purchased from Nelson, a guy who supplied BD parts to us back about ten years ago. They were model specific so they would fit the tank correctly. You could check with Bigdog or Shovelheadkicker and maybe they would have them. It's a black vinyl padded cover marked with the Bigdog Logo. First is K9 second is Bulldog. tank covers 001.JPG tank covers 002.JPG

    Yes if you need paint repaired find a reputable collision center they can match any color and if your flames need redone I'm sure there is very talented artists in California I know there is in my area

    Here's the skinny on the particular paint...one of the pearls was made by ONE company in the world. All the other paint manufacturers just bought the raw stuff from them. This company's facility was in japan. It was destroyed in the fukushima earthquake. No one else makes it. Sometimes you can find some collecting dust in a paint store. But it is still ridiculously expensive. No, it cannot be matched by "the local talented painter" as suggested. Because the raw materials are virtually unobtainable.
    I suggest you get someone to do some cover-up artwork over the damage.

    Thank You! I was pretty much told the same thing when I was looking into that poison ivy bike for myself.. the individual that did get it already decided it needed a cover up art put on it after talking with his many paint connections. Now that it's coming straight from someone who was there painting these dogs, some of these guys might actually listen..

    Quite a few other colors, Yella, Oso orange, topaz, come to mind. They were in ppg's vibrance line.

    so, i guess that would be Franco and Deaner that come to mind with Yella, Hoat and Dentdude's old bike with Orange, and not sure about the Topaz.
