One thing about wraps and vinyl is that the surface must have a painted surface for it to grab right. Will not work right on a spray painted surface or primered surface.

I do vinyl but stay away from wraps cause its just to temporary for me. I do vinyl decals only.

A few interesting wraps on that site... For the right build.

Wrapping the tank would worry me, but I've done some small-medium applications before with good results.

I say go for it and post pics!

Actually elduner I believe that you may be mistaken.
I know that before I wrapped my fenders etc in the 3m di- noc carbon finer vinyl I researched it a lot. I viewed the actual manufacturers site.
The wrap I used is considered a permanent finish. It's guaranteed for 4 yrs outdoors and 8 yrs indoors. It's from their arcitectual vinyl line and can be applied to almost anything including wood concrete plastic primer etc.
this stuff is everywhere you just don't realize it. Often when you go into a hotel or bar or store and see brushed metal finishes, carbon, stained wood, etc on the walls it's just particle board with vinyl wrap over it.

Just you tube some applications on vehicles and you will see just about anything can be wrapped and it's not temporary by any stretch.

The wrap looks great man!

A friend of mine has wrapped his car a few different times and it has come out great each time. Nice thing about wrapping is that you can easily switch things up if you get bored with whatever is on there.

On a side note, I can't believe how large the motorcycle plates are in Canada!

The plates aren't large, the bikes are just a lot smaller.

Vinyl wrap

Thanks kings head. I'm happy with the wrap... I get lots of compliments on it.

My only complaint is that it lifted a tiny bit on my rear fender where is attach the top of the fender struts. I was a little too liberal with the lock tite and apparently they don't get along well. Not much of a deterrent really, we all know how terrible satin and black paint finishes are to keep, especially around gas etc.

Yeah our plates are huge. With my side mount my Rear wheel lifts off the ground at 120 km/ hr!!!

Vinyl wrap

I was at the motorcycle show this year and one of the booths had a bike wrapped in real flames vinyl. Looked something like this. Looked awesome. Better than any airbrush I have ever seen.

Here is a link to my photobucket pics in the event anyone wants to see better pics of my carbon fibre wrap job:
