Bryan,
Just a thought........

24 litre tank looks good but is probably a smudge bulky.

16 litre tank looks good but is probably a bit too small and doesn't quite "fit" the look. ( eddy assessed).      So.......

How's about a 20 litre standard tank from Trumpland?

It has the standard look along with the slicker lines.

Just putting it out there

She rides very nicely - I had the damping set a bit hard to begin with but backed off 2 clicks front and 1 click rear sorted that.
Still coming to grips with gear ratios, doing abt 3150 rpm in top at 100km/h it seems.... don't seem to get into top that often tho.... ;)
I liked the look of the tank at first also, Jones - thought about getting one - but it hasn't really grown on me -

I like it..... I've got the Lav in the workshop ATM - should be an easy one - no mods for the wog bike .... :D

Looking good mate, how does it feel to ride?
strangely the tank doesn't look out of place on lucrezia,
Maybe that's because I've only being looking at an RH lately,

Still waiting for paint and panel - that's being done by a mate who was called away for work so I borrowed
Scotty's tank from Hen (thanks mate), using my seat (sans ducktail), and a standard rear guard I happen to have in stock
so I can get some klm's up on the big girl.......
(should have the paint sorted for the new year)

I'm using satin Selenite Grey as the main colour, with text in Wicked Blue (frame colour) and some Silver pinstripe between the blue and grey
sort of Yamaha colours - wanted to steel clear of colours that suggest another marque.
Should be out of the shed by xmas - I hope...... :-[

Bryan......that's looking great ..... do you think it will be going by next years Wellington meet?
We are going to have to find a Hybrid name for that evolution ...something like..........."Kangabanga" ......sort of like "Katana" ...but more Aussie and rider appropriate.
Only kidding ...maybe..... ;D
What colour are you considering for the paint job?

hey Brett - the plan of the rear set brackets is saved if anyone else heads in that direction -
the folder below has a video of the bare machine running, if that interests anyone (best heard on the desk top computer) - I'm waiting on paint and panel and its all over.....  :D
