I like the deluxe tank. For one, it keeps it from looking like a Harley. Mainly, I think it looks meaner and a bit more vintage.

im gonna have to agree, with above. The deluxe works more for a cafe styled bike, the custom with its sleek shape fits ur bike much better

Well I went ahead and painted the custom tank............... I'm not 100% sold on it unless i change up my handle bars................ so thats next






I love it! I wouldn't change a thing man. That two tone paint job is really cool and I like the raked out stretched look you got goin. The pipes look mean and I like those little tail lights. VERY cool in my opinion.

The custom tank and paint scheme look sweet but, it needs a big round headlight. I know you didnt ask but i think it would top it all off!

Amazing how the rear break hub, shifter, kick stand, starter, oil stick and front disk break are on the right side. How did he do that???

hows that thing ride and handle? I just raked mine out also but you went a little more extreme than I did. mine is still in chop so



I have not rode it yet but the bars want to flop over slightly sitting still I can't imagine how bad it is on your set up!!!



Also whats up with the mirror image pics?
