01. As you can see, this tank suffers from a very common ailment. Dents, grinds, and file marks left behind from the ’60s and ’70s when it just wasn’t cool to have all those stock badges and decorative trim. Back then, the hipster had to have a “smooth” bike. Out went the decorations and candy canes and in came the bondo and smooth chopped necks. To cure this problem and get the tank back in prime shape, you could re-introduce new bondo. But wait, what about putting new badges on and turning this 1941 tank into its former stock glory? You can’t just leave all those screwdriver dents and pry marks! Well, why not just pull all of the dents with a slide hammer? Hmmm, sounds like lots of highs and lows. What about water and a freezer? It’ll probably turn it into the shape of a football. So what the heck do you do?
