The small decal that goes on the rear of the RG500 gas tank where it meets the seat; how is it situated? I think it is supposed to be sideways, but want to make sure before installing it.

Perhaps too late but I just saw this post John. It's from my spare tank. Pretty sure it's original.

Hey John, Curiosity got the better of me so I checked my Black tank on the roller build I got and it is also sideways. I assumed it was a repaint but COULD it be a WW? The previous owner said only that it had WW wheels and ownership said yellow and I changed it to white? Anyone know Canadian WW serial #'s to check and rule it out, Dan

Rick sent me the VIN info for the Canadian bikes a while back and he says the WW bikes are VIN 883 to 982.

Rick sent me a photo of the tank decal and it is the same as the one you have.

You know, you really should sell that roller to me. You have far too many bikes and will never get that one built ;-)

Neither of mine are WW then. My S/N are both under 400.
