is that one of the "cruiser" ones?
It's the E series. I bought the original tank on ebay last night as well. Bike doesn't run, will be doing carbs tomorrow to see if I can get some life into it!
Oh my :| hopefully it included a basket of parts?
The tires would imply the P.O. was attempting to create a humongous dirt tracker, in which case they might as well have discarded the front brakes completely. Or more likely a bobber chop, in which case putting money into new lug tires was a dumb idea before they had a running motor. What are you hoping to do with it?
First bike! Its mainly for the project side of things, I just went through a separation and wanted something to focus on.
I would like to see where the original tank settles down, hopefully I wont have to do frame work to have a lower profile seat look nice... straight lines on café racers inspired me, I would like to see a clean line from the bottom of the tank to the tail, but if that's not possible I can deal. will be getting lighter tires for sure..
going to powder the frame in the coming weeks once I figure out if I need to mod it at all.

Sorry to hear of your recent separation :I would highly recommend you get yourself a dog, that will give you company, keep you occupied and dogs are extremely faithful to their master.

Like Trials said, get that engine going first, everything else is pointless if the thing cant go down the road under its own power
