    Those tank lifts should be a crime.

    The lifted tank seems to break the line of the bike you were trying to create with the low handlebars. Tank lifts seem to only look right with tall bars. Though, it will always look a million times better to actually frisco mount a peanut or custom tank.

    OK you asked what we think..the tank looks like a UFO has landed on your bike. If you must keep the tank, set it back down on the backbone especially if you keep the bars like that. The fender and sissy look great as well as the pipes. The front of the bike doesn't go with the back. I would get a flat bottom tank and run taller bars. Put the shocks back on and frame mount the seat. But I really dig the pipes !!

    i dont think its the tank lift that throws it off. Its actually those big tanks. i went with a smaller flatbottom and even lifted it looks fine. then again i do like my bars a little higher.

    the good thing about lifting the tank is you can fit that huge efi wiring harness on top of the backbone and in the tank, instead of underneath of it.

    This.

    Those tanks are seriously big and ugly and lifting them only makes it worse. Nice work on the rest though.

    The gas tank on your bike is too big; you need a smaller tank. Lose the sprung seat kit. Ditch the mirrors. Looks good otherwise.

    Did someone say something about a tank???

    Haha, nice looking scoot man... But honestly, that tank is hideous.

    The pipes, sissy bar, rear fender all look good... clean and narrow, then plump there's a giant turd of a tank sitting on the back bone.

    I said it once, and I'll say it again... a furry bearded man cries on the inside every time a tank is lifted.

    ..... you did ask for opinions.

    Switch it for a 2.1gal peanut off one of the new 48's or 72's at least.

    It takes a tiny bike and throws the proportions off making it look odd. In other words it throws off the lines

    Do you ever watch little people big world. It's like looking at midget. They look like regular people but the
    Proportions are off

    Just keep at it man. If you built the custom stuff then thats awesome. There are some parts about yr bike I think are cool and others that I could do without. either way if your anything like me you'll just keep pushing the limits on your own skills and eventually get to a point where you can't take it any longer and chop the whole thing to pieces so you can build your ultimate vission. Keep at it!
