This is a shovel I'm building for a friend, the tank was his idea, I'm mearly working with what he gave me, although it does grow on ya and I do dig it. It will be gloss black when done. The radiator cap is from an old ford. I had a guy machine out a bung for it. The brass petcock is a Hank Young piece. The tank is an old Ducati. Going with different trees too....a spool front rim with a perimeter brake and lots of other things...not real close to being done but it should be pretty cool.

That little steel tab is going to be used to secure a leather strap from the frame to the tank. Again.....when you're not building for yourself you have to compromise. It really sucks doing something to a bike that you don't want to do.

Cool bike...I just don't understand why people want to add items designed for the sole purpose of creating the smooth look in the groin area..

Still trying to figure it out. Not a fan of the cap, and there are quite a few things on there I dont love. His bike, I just try to steer him in the right direction best I can, when I can't ....... I just kinda cringe and do it.

Why does he want that gas cap on his bike?
