I wanted a bigger tank, but this may be too much. What do you think?

chip,

send us (post up) some more photos of other angles of the bike. drag it outside for some natural light too.

at first glance, i think it works, but i really would like to see some different perspectives.

what kind of tank?

I took those pics at 2 AM, I'll have to get some daylight pics. It's a CX 500 tank, and the rearsets are from an FZR 600.

it looks a little wide but not too bad. be sure to adjust the seat and tank to get straight lines across the bottom.

The seat is cocked back a little, but it's because everything is just kind of sitting there mocked up. I didn't want to put too much effort into it until I deciced to use it or not

So, I raised the front of the tank a little, and got it positioned better. The seat needs a little trimming and it will sit just about right to match the lower lines of the tank. It really is growing on me. Sorry about the dark pics, but the only chance I have to work on it is the middle of the night. Oh, I promise the fugly taillight is not staying ;)
