I agree, lines can make or break a project. The seat bottom is close to inline with the front half of the tank, lifting it up a bit more would need redoing of the seat brackets... going to leave that for a future date.... Hey, maybe if the bottom line of the seat and that of the tank appear precisely parallel, the visual effect will be of a single (staggered) forceful horizontal.
Thanks. Factory road tests for the '56 Super Meteor model (under "favorable" conditions) could reach it, engine has been reworked to squeeze every bit of power possible...looking good, will it do the Ton?
(i see you got the BNR and a PWK carb any other tuning?
