    If it isn't too much trouble, what are the dimensions of that tank? That tank looks perfect for my project. I mainly need the length. Thanks.

    The bike is currently torn apart as I dumped it and locked a rod end. It took about two months for all the parts to come in for the engine and I have been too busy to do any work on it. Now that is is winter again and I am mostly finished up with the other projects I will get back to working on it.
