Tank is more or less done as far as the fab work goes. It's not perfect but most of it will be painted anyway aside from a polished panel on each side. Some of the welding went very well and some not so good. I actually impressed myself with the welding around the tunnel/oil filler cutaway, it was near impossible to get at it :) I still have to weld on the locator brackets on the front.

Only the tank and seat left to finish now on this bike. I have been working on the tank and got the side panel polished today. Hopefully start paint tomorrow. Where you see the black sharpie line in the pic that will be a gold pinstripe with the polished alum panel inside it then the main tank body will be black. I've already decided that I will be making another tank for this bike as this one came out a little larger than I wanted. I treat this as practice;)
