I just bought a Trident 660.
I find upright sitting position is not comfortable for me.
And Cafe racer bug has bit me.

The tank is pretty wide and lower positioned clip on's will hit the tank near full lock.

How do you remedy it? Do you find a completely new gas tank?

Do you think this will make a good looking cafe racer?

Maybe you should have bought a Bonneville or a Thruxton.

Try Arton Works in Rome. They are working on that now.
Yes, they can make your naked look and work way better, lol they can help you put a fairing on it.

Depending on how much room you need, instead of a narrow tank you could modify the stops on the forks so the bars don't turn as far. Probably a boatload easier and the only time I use full steering lock is when I'm moving the bike around in the shop.

Serioulsy, compare the range of motion on that bike to a Ducati with massive forks and a trellis frame. You've got room to work with I'm sure.
