Custom tank

Just finished stretching my cx500 custom tank. First thought was to weld an extra bit on, but finished up building the extension with good old fibre glass. I've mounted a single seat a bit further back which has made the riding position so much better, especially as my shins used to rub on the engine guards.I've lowered the rear suspension by installing 11" shocks. Will post some pics shortly.

ok so how far did you stretch the tank and i didnt think fiberglass would hold up to fuel and how did you connect the two pieces together or did you just make a hole at the end of the tank to bolt it down???

and also how much more does it hold
ook i thought that you were making it longer that way it could hold more fuel
