Hi guys,
Just wondering if I could get some opinions on the direction of my bike build. I got given a tank with my 52 triumph 6t basket case, but it's too big and doesn't sit right.

So I've considered switching to a peanut tank or a narrow alien tank? The peanut would make the bike look less squashed and cramped looking, where the narrow alien would make it look more sleek.

What's your opinion?

I would go peanut, ridged pre units can look a little short/cramped and going higher with the tank will make it look more short/cramped. Thats my opinion anyway..

I love 2.2-gallon peanut tanks... the quintessential motorcycle gas tank. And if you want/need the tank to be higher, frisco it buy one that has been frisco'ed. Here are pics of my Ironhead with a vintage standard 2.2-gallon peanut and my Evo with the exact same tank only frisco'ed... plus a pic of how the frisco'ed tank sits on top of the backbone (excuse my crappy mounting system).

Here are some pics of my Tiger 100 with a Wassell peanut tank for your reference.
