Default Made new tank and bars...

So I posted the progress on my turbo setup last weekend but i have yet to show you all what other parts of the bike I have been working on. A while back(way before the drag bike thread) I decided to change the bike up an make it look similar to a 70's drag bike, so Lately I have done allot of changing to the bike, The biggest things being, I hand built and alum. fuel tank, and made some drop bars/risers to make my springer look like it has clip-ons to give me that stretched out look, and the turbo. Here are some progress pictures of the bike. LEt me know what you all think.

(The fuel tank slid down a bit, I didnt notice until i seen the pics, It mounts up towards the bars more.)






Thanks for looking

Fuck is that cool!
Nice work, when I saw it in the first pic I thought you'd be laying down on it, but you look kinda comfy in the pic.
Nice work.

Thank you all very much! Ill get some close ups of the bars and stuff as soon as I remember to get some bats for my camera. I was real surprised at how comfortable to bike is with the bars, its not really bad. I have about 1.5-2.5 hours in the tank so far, i still have to put bungs, mounts, a filler, and the tunnel in it though, so I have allot of work ahead of me on it.

Thanks again for all the complements, ill keep you all posted on progress.

Yup, About 50 years ago. They are called "Z" Bars.
