This is getting dangerously close to looking like you know what you're doing.
Once you're no longer a hack you're not welcome here anymore  ;D

I promise, I'm still a hack.

I've decided to go with a first gen XL350 tank, because I like the shape and I have an idea for placement of my ignition switch. I saw opportunity in the cutout for the carb.  This tank is just for mocking. A good tank is en route...



Seat pan is basically done. Waiting on the springs, then mount. Covering may be the last thing I do.

Made a remote m/c and reservoir so I can run a simple cable control on the bars.  The unit will get welded underneath the tank and  a short Z50r cable will actuate the lever.

Looks great! Just curious why you didn't use the beemer under tank mc? Thought you had a spare

The BMW m/c is too wide and too tall, it’s built for the top of the frame, it’s prone to leak, and I gave mine to Charlie at Thaw.
