External pumps are noisy, and can die earlier from heat.  Having it in the tank keeps it cooler and quieter.  And surge tanks are hard to mount without looking goofy.  Plus this let him keep the factory regulator in the pump assembly.

I have an external pump in my EFI swapped triumph spitfire, on hot days you can hear the pump complain.

before he ships it back, have him add cross-over bungs.....otherwise you're only going to use half the tank if that with the in-tank pump.

Thanks man, if Dime city ever gets back to me about when my muffler is going out I can finish it. Thanks to Ncologerojr my tank now has a fuel pump, all cleaned up, and ready to be lined, and body worked. I'll post more photos once it's here, but looks like he did a fantastic job!

Wow, I'd love to see more pics of that pump setup before it went in.  I have the same dilema on one of my bikes.  OEM's are outrageous if I can even find one.

While waiting for the muffler I decided to strip the tank and start body working it. 1 coat of metal filler done, one more to go, then I'll use a glaze for the top coat. Man I forgot how much I like doing bodywork. Just watching all the imperfection go away is awesome. I'm going to fully bodywork the frame as well, really try to make it prettier.

Maybe it's the Ceriani-looking forks or maybe the big spaces in the frame but even though nothing on this bike is Italian, it reminds me of an Italian bike from the early 60's late 50's, very cool.

Thanks man. Those spaces are going to disappear pretty quick once I put the throttle bodies, intake, filters, radiator, and cover for the battery box on. It will still have that simple flowing look, but I wish it could stay like this. And yes that top clamp really looks like a beefier ceriani, and I don't think many people take the time to get every single casting mark out of the forks, makes a tremendous difference. Also a massive pain lol. I'm just excited fab work will be done in a couple more weeks, I started this a year and a half ago!
