Progress shot. Still waiting on the good condition tank and I’m crossing my fingers on a couple of eBay auctions for a rear fender...

This thing is really shaping up nice. I'm liking it a lot now. Excited to see the finished product.

This thing is coming along fantastically Eric!

If your eBay fender prospects fall through, PM Me, I might be able to help out.

Thanks, Cookie. I got the priority fender, so we’ll see how this goes.

I took a chance on a homemade $10 oil tank on Ebay. I was pretty sure it had 750 size connections and it in fact did. The question is if 1.25 quarts is enough.

add a remote oil filter and use the long chevy filter that will boost it a quart with the lines

The new XL350 tank got delivered today. It’s got a few dings, but man the patina is glorious. I’ll have to think really hard about painting this tank.



I also began work on a Cush drive conversion experiment. It’s an RM250 wheel, so no Cush. I could swap for DR350s, but people want silly money for them. I still have a few details to work out, including casting the urethane innards...

that tank is the beez kneez. Don't know how far you'll get between fill ups, but my guess is you'll be aching for a break at that point anyways

No more than if it had a Frisco, Peanut, Wassel, Axed, Coffin, Prism, Sportster, or Alien tank. It's exactly the same volume.

Yeah. My 3.5 gal tank on my chop only get me so far and I'm usually ready to stop by then anyways.

I dig that tank you got. I vote keep the patina.
