Here's my two choices for the BSA:

I'm thinking I like the GME, but I got this kick ass "Fanticmotor" tank, complete with remnants of the OG paint. If I go GME, the paint is gonna be the same (as close as I can get) as Pedro's buddy's car in Napoleon Dynamite. Probably leave the original Fantic paint if I go that route.

:asshat:

It's a toss up, both look good on there.

I guess if it was mine, I'd go with the one on the bottom.

NHMike's wrong.;)

The top one's better looking.

Because it seems like everyone wants to rock a wassell style tank. Don't hate on the dood with originality.

with the eggshell shaped motor- never run a coffin or any sharp edged tank or even a sporty tank- looks like crap.
an axed mustang tank looks great as well as the top tank in pic that being a mustang tank- or even the stock bsa tank . its all bout flow lines to me.

bottom tank nope doesnt do it for me at least./

The other side hasn't faded as much.

Agreed, I like the bottom one, a little more original.

I would run the white tank. I can dig the the mustang on a BT but it is too big for a BSA. If you're not sure mock up the seat/fender and front end/ bars and then step back and check the flow.

This was an "unload the truck and see what all my new shit looks like" sorta thing. I need a lot more bricks and broomsticks to put all the other shit on.

I'm hoping I can get out there this weekend with a million zip ties, twenty four landscaping bricks, and a couple of tie down straps, and get a better idea. Oh, and two broomsticks.

But I tend to agree, it seems like more often than not, folks run too big a tank on a BSA chop..
