Welp, I have a new mukuni 38mm on order. The old one had some funky bits on it and I thought it best to bite the bullet and start fresh. While I await the postman, I figured I'd mull over a re-style. I picked up this TT500 tank and a $30 Amazon seat - and it has me captivated. The Tracy body is rad but it's also heavy and cumbersome. _and ugly_

What do you dudes think? Tracy body or tt500 tank?

Agreed.

TT tank but add a fender.

I think that's the ticket. I wouldn't run this actual seat, I'd make my own. This is a $30 Amazon job.

Does anyone have any experience fitting a tt tank to an SR? It looks tougher than I thought - I'll have to relocate the coil, cut off some existing tabs and oil cooler and weld on new tabs. I thought it'd be cake. (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻

I like the TT tank too but also fender on rear even if you go with a longer seat.

Looks like every other instagram cafebrattracker with the TT tank and flat seat. Meh.

The Tracy body may be big and ugly but at least it's got character.

My vote's with the Tracy.

That's a no bainer for me.  TT tank is nice enough but it just looks like any other off road to street brat scrambler mix up.  The Tracy body is never going to be light or current, but it's pretty much unique now and therefore interesting. 

To me, it's got to stay as a period piece.  Put another way, do you want people to notice it and talk about it?  If so go Tracy. There's a whole story there to dine off for years.  TT tank - not so much.

That's just my opinion.  YMMV.
