The guy's looking for some advice on how to do it, dude, not how to buy it out of a catalog. Cool your jets. Realistically, he probably should empty tank/mock up/eyeball/mock up again/cut/weld, but we all need advice from time to time.I'm very interested in this. I'm not sure ANYONE here has EVER Frisco'd a sporty tank. I've never even seen them in any aftermarket catalogs, Ebay, or the Jock Shops here.
Well if you have to ask, then the easiest way would be to buy it out of a catalog.The guy's looking for some advice on how to do it, dude, not how to buy it out of a catalog. Cool your jets.

Cutting it up for? Are you narrowing it? Or just cutting the bottom off?I'm working on a couple of peanut tanks for learning experience and when I cut up my king sporty tank It just looked wierd to me.but I don't know much and just starting to learn this shit.
I've always had better luck narrowing the stock sporty tanks VS the king tanks. The king tanks have that weird flat spot around the filler neck that makes it tough. The King tanks do make good donors for cutting the filler neck out though. Narrowing the king tank obviously can be done, theres just more work involved getting thins to line up. You need to cut a panel out of the middle when narrowing and join the two remaing halves.Just cutting them for experience...old beat up tanks I have.
I have three of them so I'm cutting the bottoms off and narrowing
Just a bit..this is my first attempt.
Looks like that is Heavy-Duty mounted all-right...My king tank is already molded in and its going to be a bummer to undo then redo it but thats what building a scooter is all about. here it is before starting
