wow, that looks great. is that a stock oil tank? did you do some fab work on it? what type of ignition will you be running...if using a battery, where do plan on putting it? sorry about all the questions...again, very nice, can't wait to see the finished product.

No battery, just a Sparx regulator with a built in cap. I think I'm actually going to run points on this one just for grins, but I may end up putting a Hunt on it because I have a magneto fetish.

The oil tank is formed from .063 aluminum, I wanteds to make one that sort of looked like a stock tank, but followed a rigid rear section a little better. For some reason a round one looked really out of place on this bike.
