I didn't doubt you for a second Dan, but I just couldn't quite visualise an Angry Monkey longbike. And prism tanks, well they work sometimes. Now it's a roller...wow, really great lines and the tank looks spot on - I can't wait to see how this turns out now!

Somehow I hope there won't be a sissy bar on this particular bike, but if that's the way you're going I'm sure you'll change my mind.

Just throwing this out there, but to my eye I think it would flow a lot better if the tank profile was dropped over the frame so that the bottom was level and the lower front angle matched the down tubes. Of course, then you'd lose a lot of capacity and have to move the filler, probable need cross over tube and vent also. Maybe 2 piece prism tank with the tops flush with the top rail????

I like it. I think the tank flows well with the rest of the bike.

Thanks! Brant is definitely the long bike guy around here I'm sure he'll chime in shortly.

Ha! Being my first long bike, I find myself doubting almost everything This client ride ALOT, and much of the time 2-up, so a sissy bar will be going on. Just a small one though.

Thanks Lester. It looks more "digger" than "choppa" with that tank. Obviously The lower the better to my eye.

Haha! Well, to my eye everything about this bike looks odd, but I think that's mostly because I usually build tightly packaged short and low bikes . This guy does a ton of long haul riding and this tank is already short on capacity. It has the highest tunnel of any prism, so that's as low as it is going to get. Some of the space between the tank and engine will fill with other stuff, but it is a long bike, so there is going to be some negative space in that area.

Oh C'mon Dan... you know you are having fun. I mean just look at it. Its perfect!!!

Wait til you ride it at speed. Oh am I jealous. Im gonna say it... In my opinion this is the best trump long bike Ive seen. No offense to the others out there... this one fits as my favorite.


Now dont go gettin a big head there Dan. My opinion is not worth much. Take it and two pennies and you will have 2 cents.

Looking good!

I used a prism tank on my Triumph build, but I didn't like the way the rear of the tank tapered into the frame. Ended up raising the rear and chopping off the end to flow better with the front of the seat. Fit the lines of the frame better too. Just an idea!

Update! Progress has been slow due to a death in the family and a dirt bike related torn calf muscle. But now we are back on track. The oil tank is built and mounted. I used blind threaded bungs in the oil tank to reduce the overall unit width while maintaining full thread engagement. Both rear motor mounts will get their excess fat trimmed off for a cleaner look as well as a few gussets to stiffen them both up.




This aftermarket motor mount was flexing when the brake was applied so it got a couple gussets near the mounting bolts to stiffen it up.

I bet the weld between those two gussets was a be-otch. Nice work

Looks great though.

I see you're going for the skinny, simplex chain type rear guard. Are you going to fabricate some cobweb style struts?

TOO funny! There will eventually be a more substantial rear fender than just the chain laying on there. I doubt the overall effectiveness of a "chain fender", but to each his own...

This is really coming along nicely. Did you use bends, or did you start with exhaust donuts?

That's right! If you want to meet up and/or see one of our bikes, we will be in Austin TX for the Hand built show in just a couple weeks. Shoot me a PM if you plan to attend.


This is the bike that will be in the show...

Now back to our regularly scheduled program
