Welcome Godffrey.
Got some cool projects going on. Looks like you need a bigger garage. Don't we all. I've got a huge soft spot for Nortons. Great to see'em on here.

RE: the Larson cartoon, I had a boss once who had that on his office wall. He had his name and his Asst. Mgr.'s name written over the two Devil types. I guess it was supposed to inspire us, or strike fear. Funny none the less.

Cheers- Leo

I like the Larson cartoon because I relate to the guy with the wheelbarrow. 8 /

Sorry man;
Props to the Co-Oh'vinmoto No Disrespect meant, I love all the Vin"moto'ist ! I checked out your Garage site, Love the CB 160 work !

Hey mudmonkey;
Yes, speaking of CB 160's. . . http://springvinmoto.com/gallery/album100 . . I made that tank from stock and stretched err out then made those recesses toward the back to allow for mounting to the stock frame. I also did the Seat pan, rear sets, wheels and side covers .

Thanks.

just curious...did you cut into the tank and increase the fuel capacity, or just add onto it? also, how did you get the sides to look so nice...just alot of bondo and patience?

hey krapfever, i've been watching the progress on your cb160, but haven't seen any posts in a while...how is it coming? that seat/tank combo you have is amazing.

fine job on that benelli tank...your attention to detail is outstanding.

i've wanted to make a tank for some time, and even got some Ron Covell videos...but it's still so intimidating....

think you could make a mini "hanx" tank for my cb125?

Hey,

I love the 160. I've seen it a bunch of times while surfin' through pictures. Nice to know who put it together. I was always trying to figure out where the hell that tank came from, but now I know. I used to live in Sheboygan! Sweet.

boy-town! Isn't that in Chicago? I lived there for two years while I worked at Kohler Co. Now I hang my hat back in Connecticut, where I'm originally from. The most boring riding I've ever done is in the area surrounding Sheboygan.
