    ok...so what are your questions?

    Also I thought you wanted to copy that Kott bike, which I think used an xs750 or xs850 tank (or something similar).

    Ooooooo that's going to be a tough one :| a replacement 40 year old Japanese, steel construction fuel tank with stamped seams, plus it has a locking fuel cap. I'll check the local wreckers but I imagine anything they have is in fair to nasty condition.

    So.....you want a CX tank to put on a CB750?

    I don't think I could imagine an uglier combination.
