That shupe guy, don't trust him.
I've met him once in a weird roadside diner  deep into meth country in Kentucky. The dude has shifty eyes for sure

Kiley photo shopped a couple of tanks onto the frame for me. One is a Lowbrow p-nut and the other is a mustang from (I think) TC Bros. I think something like one of these is the look I'm going for.

Yeah, that Mustang tank is a nice shape on your bike.

Neither one of them is an XL tank.  Just sayin'

Bars.....   I ran a set of low drag bars on my chop for awhile and they look good but are pretty uncomfortable.    I put on a set of 8" rise buckhorn style and I love them. 

Something "like" these :   https://www.lowbrowcustoms.com/biltwell-inc-zed-handlebars-7-8-inch-chrome.html   would look good and be pretty comfortable to ride with.   You have manly fab skills, you could probably make your own.

I'm leaning in that direction. I think it looks good but also 3.3 gallons instead of 1.8. I like to go a little further than around the corner.

Something like that could work. I also like these https://www.thefactorymetalworks.com/products/1-inch-t140-style-stainless-steel-handlebars-for-all-custom-motorcycles
and these https://www.jpcycles.com/product/5000055/j-p-cycles-1-chrome-8-1-2-buckhorn-style-handlebar?utm_term=%5B507844792952%3A*%2520%2F%2520product%2520type%2520%3D%2520%22vehicles%2520%26%2520parts%22%2520%2F%2520product%2520type%2520%3D%2520%22land%2520vehicles%22%2520%2F%2520product%2520type%2520&siteid=NB_G_PLA&product_id=5000055&adpos=1o1&creative=42616780690&device=c&matchtype=&network=g&gclid=CjwKCAiAtdDTBRArEiwAPT4y-xHdDe_W7kCt67_wRlN5G2yiGZe5ADllpF_BtWGhrAWKuWfgdEwDlBoCdWMQAvD_BwE

I don't have access to a tube bender, I don't weld and I'm lazy so I'm probably not making my own.
