The backbone(s) look pretty parallel to the ground to me, what is it that you're seeing Brandon?

I think he was referring to the back of the proposed tank and the angle at which the rear of the tank comes down to meet the backbone(s).

I have already changed the profile and have started cutting metal. If I can get the monsters to bed at a reasonable time I will put an hour or two in tonight. I'll throw some pics on here when there is more to see.

It is starting to look like something.....a balloon full of marbles...lol.

I have the top rough formed and am pretty happy with it so far.It is still very rough and there is a lot of finish work still needed on this piece, then I can move onto the sides.







The top will have a bit less crown when all is said and done, but that is close to the profile of the thing.

I fire glued some more bits to the slightly gas tank shaped edifice. I am about 10hrs into it now and no where close to done. There is still a lot of shaping and smoothing to be done, but I am fairly pleased with the progress.

Wow, yes it as been a long time.

I still have it minus the wheels, but it has been put on the back burner. I kind of got bunt out on it and I started robbing parts from it for other projects, so now it's sits, waiting for inspiration I guess. I thought about selling it, but I would guess that the market for such a thing would be pretty limited.

Thanks for the interest though and I will start a thread on my newest addiction when it gets closer to completion.

Thanks alpinaclone.
Maybe itīs one of the most interesting projects of this forum.
I think the way you change the frame is very different from the rest... trail to cafe...
Please post some pics of the process of your new tank and the rest of the bike...
Good work...
Bye
