    800+ bucks is pretty much the standard for those hand shaped aluminum tanks.
    What is your project, anyway?
    I seem to remember an aluminum tank of similar design available for a little less from Royal Enfield.

    They're big money but you can pick up a fiberglass Dunstall style or CR750 tank for 5-600$ plus shipping .
    You can check www.manxmc.com to see if he can pound you a tank . Still might be about 800$ though but still better than 600 Euro. Seeing than you are in the Canaries you also might want to see www.tankshop.com in the UK.

    Why do they call a ram in the ass a goose?

    600 euro is about 760 US.
    That's not a bad price for that tank.

    Google "tank shop" before you get too excited. One of the shops out there is notorious for taking a huge amount of time to get things built, if ever. I _think_ it's the Tank Shop but I'm not positive.

    Another thing - be sure to check on shipping fom the UK. IIRC, it's expensive as hell to ship a tank from there. (But exchange rates have changed since I was looking at English tanks so YMMV)

    dude, what is wrong with your stock tank? how about you get that piece running and rideable before you go dropping $1000 on a hand hammered alloy tank. Last picture you showed me your bike had no freaking exhaust, forget the fancy parts, don't spend a dime on style until you can get that sucker more than three blocks under its own power.
