VTX 1800 Coyote Gas Cap Hinge

I purchased the Coyote Gas Cap Hinge in May 2010. I've always said it was by far the best accessory I added to the VTX. I am now trading in the VTX to the dealer and removed the accessories I added that will not increase the trade-in value. I carefully removed the hinge from the bike with dental floss. I left the 3M tape on the hinge so the purchaser sees how it was originally installed. New 3M tape not included. $50. Free shipping within US.

I've never seen anything like this before, it's pretty cool! Did you ever have any maintenance issues when you removed the tank?

I'm not looking to start the war over again, because of issues between the Coyote hinge and Glen's VTX Garage copy, but for someone interested in a gas cap hinge Glen's is an option.
