2000 fatboy peeling inside of gas tank Has anyone had the same problem with their 2000 harley fatboy? I was draining the gas out of the tank and a large piece of primer came out. I looked inside the tank and to my surprise their is so much of this primer peeling off. What can I do to fix this problem? The bike has less then 2000 miles on it and Harley said they have never heard of this. They told me I could get a new tank, the problem is I paid for a custom paint job through harley and their was only 125 sets made. What is the point of paying for a custom paint job if I have to buy a whole new tank. Please can someone steer me in the right direction on how to fix this problem. Thank you

Hi Sharon, This is definately a warranty issue, don't let the dealer double talk you into nothing less than total satisfaction. The way I see it you have a few options, 1. Replace your custom paint job with a different one. 2. Fix the peeling problem no matter what it takes keeping your original paint job. 3. Contact the Motor Company directly and ask them why your dealer can't rectify the problem to your satisfaction. For more information about your question please visit the websites below. Good luck and have nice day.
