    I'm not at all worried about it, if it were being built to ride cross country, I would have designed it differently. This is being built as a bar hopper toy. If the valves end up so far out that the bike can't make it home, pull two bolts, lift the front of the tank and adjust the valves on the side of the road. I've done parking lot surgeries that have had much more dismantling than that to make it home before. It's not like the entire head is submerged in the gas tank.. the gas tank sides look pretty low, but they are bowled underneath back to a stock tunnel.. I just pulled the inspection cap off of the right exhaust rocker and the adjustment nut is accessible. Not as easily accessible as a flat bottom tank, but again.. preventative maintenance with the tank lifted in the garage is easily completed.

    Got the rear motor mount fab'd up today, and my machinist has the new bearing cups for my old front wheel done. All that's left now is the oil tank and rear fender then I need to figure out forward controls and wiring.

    I was wondering about that rear motor mount? I was going to ask if you were going to change the square tubbing I've never ran one like that but heard they don't work very well. I fabbed mine out of round tubing. Here is a pic of mine please post a pic of your rear motor mount.

    I've got myne built with round tubing also. The square tubing was to get my distance and to ensure it was doing to clear the chain. My left motor plate still needs trimmed, but the rear motor mount bolts to the frame downpipe, then the side plates bolt to the stock motor rear plate locations. Chain clears, and it clears my oil tank.

    Starting to get the handlebars figured out. Using 1950's Harley internal cable bars. The clutch I'm still not 100% sure about, but the throttle side for sure. The angle is extreme on these things.

    Getting there now. Got the rear fender on, the exhaust crossover tubes going, rear motor mount finished, front wheel spaced, hard tail aligned and spot welded and bars finished up. The internal clutch line is ran, the throttle will need a custom cable built. Starting on footpegs and rear brake setup this week.

    Got the sprocket spaced today, got the seat from my leather man, and got the powder coating set up. Final lengths of correct diameter stainless exhaust pieces ordered, just waiting on the oil tank parts to show up, then we'll ALMOST be ready to tear it apart for paint.

    Photographer came up last night and shot some pics... working on footpeg hangers and getting the last of the exhaust done, then stripping her down for final welding and smoothing the frame.

    Finished oil tank sides showed up today. Killer! Got ahold of Dan about my rear tire clearance issues... apparently a 150 rear tire will NOT work, have to go to the 130, which doesn't bother me in the least. Got it on order, just gotta take my oil tank and get it welded up (I dont trust my AL welding as only get one shot at this), then it's wiring and brakes and then off to paint.

    Got the oil tank welded up today, just need the feed and return fittings (and a vent). Also got the exhaust re-welded (the upper pipe pulled on me from inadequate prep work the first go around), and the oil tank mounting brackets built. The lines are close, but are spot on after the rubber bushings are there. Got the tank in final primer, and started in on cleaning up some of the spot welds that we had holding little stuff on (like seat spring perches, rear fender brackets, etc). Will tear back down tomorrow night and start finish welding everything.

    On a side note, the oil tank holds 3.5+ Qts of water (and it doesn't leak! Wowsers!). I was shooting for 2 to 2.5, I'm super happy with the volume this thing has!
