anyone know how to "save" the paint on the tanks? The cracks in the chips seemed to have lengthened a bit since I took the pic you see. My initial thought was maybe a dab of super glue or something under the chips to hold them down a bit longer (but I'm good at ghetto riggin) Any thoughts...I want the bike to last as is for as long as I can get it too....

I've heard of doing that, just wait till the glue cures then wet sand it. Good call on riding it as is, such cool bikes.

It doesn't get much better than a 69 FLH. Congratulations!

Here's my 69.

Id be more concerned of rust damage to the tanks trying to save the paint so to speak.

Pete....I agree. I figure its just a matter of time before they need to be replaced. Just want to ride it out as long as I can I suppose...
