    something to add about those tanks: most of them had norton style mounts - where the tank has posts on the bottom and required tabs be welded to the frame to bolt to. Also the tank is so narrow it fits well on single backbone frames (like brit frames) but japanese double and triple backbone frames will require some "adjustment"

    here are some pics of the same tank mounted on a kawasaki h1 frame. In one of the pics you can see the rear mounts. you can also see how the tank sits a hair above the frame rails:

    If they call a sheep a ram.
    And a donkey an ass.
    Why do they call a ram in the ass a goose?
