Hey fellow Cult members!

Brand new to the Cult and I'm wanting to get back in the building/customizing game with a Honda Shadow VLX 600. I cut up and completely rebuilt a stock 1987 Suzuki Savage with mostly Blue Collar Bobber kits as my first build. With some hiccups, trial and error, a bunch of hours and PBR's later, I had a sweet little one lung thumper. I loved it but had to sell it when I moved from California to Oregon. Ive seen some great Shadow builds on here and think that will be a great place for me start another build. I'm having some trouble finding online sources for parts, specifically gas tanks. Also, Im looking for a rear fender that will support a female passenger of about 130 pounds. Any help, thoughts, pics, personal experiences, trial and errors would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for looking and ride safe!

cheers

Also, is there any site to pick up a dual backbone gas tank, or should I just convert the frame into a single? The latter seems like the way to go.

What kind of tank are you wanting? Cause there are plenty of options with out hacking the backbone

Im looking for a narrow sporty style tank or a just a narrow tank in general, Im not a huge fan of the VLX stock tank
