Great big sump extension, I would say. That's a swell bike.

Been helping a good buddy convert his BSA Victor to a cafe racer. The two of us have often discussed how it is difficult to convert one of these to a full street bike without it still looking like a trials bile...even the Victor Roadster didn't really look right, at least in our opinion. The job started last fall and over the course of the winter we tinkered with it off and on between other work. Anyhow, with spring starting to get a little closer we have got it just about finished. We fitted a set of Norton Roadholder forks with external springs, vented the front and rear brakes along with dozens of other changes. The engine which was fully rebuilt only a year ago needed no attention, so it is running and ready for the road. He is getting his wife to do up some tank badges and the jury is still out on whether to use the knee grips I made for it. Only missing a set of petcocks, I brought it home for him last weekend...here is what we came up with:

Thinking of buying a cheap evo sporty and turn it into a cafe style bike but just can get my head around using a sporty tank - any suggestions on what else can be used that looks good and wont require mad fab skills?

Stortz Performance in Ventura, CA has such tanks for sale but they require mad paying skills.
