Hey irk!May I ask how did you get that nice tank to fit?did you cut out something on the bottom and weld something back in like on the BMW build?

thanks
Because it's a chopper frame, it pretty much just fit.  The XL frame it came off of basically has the same spine.

Local guy was selling a HD and 72 XS tank fit cheap, so I picked them up to test out...

HD tank doesn’t look bad at all...

That Harley tank does fit the bill. Still like the patina Honda one though

I like that tank on your bike alot.  Fits the lines well.  I had another thought.  I would go with a longer front end.  Crazy maybe but , another few inches, it would sit the engine slightly more vertical and help with the ground clearance with the pipes.  I like those with the leading axles you have, maybe drop triples for a different offset ? 
It would also be rad.

Either way, I wanna see this one through.  I dig your chop.

It's possible that the forks are dropped an inch or two from the weight of the bike.  I haven't gotten Doug to set these forks up for this bike yet, since I need to have it more compete to give him the weight.  I've definitely noticed it drops under weight.

Something else I'm looking at, which may be too bulky, is this Paughco seat I got a good deal on...

 Man I love the lines on your bike, such a cool profile.  Me I prefer the bobber-style seat pan more but yeah, my ass won't be sitting on it either   :o
