    Awesome thanks Twigg! Thanks for the appreciation man! I'm not usually a fat tyre man myself, but these had kind of a cool old look I was keen to try make it work.
    I have a skinny rear build in here too, it's under " Heritage Chop", check it out! Cheers

    Started playing with another tank. This one was a Jesse James villain tank that we are down sizing as these tanks are way to big for a softail frame. As you see in the pic it's just sitting there, not mounted. It's been cut in half and the bottom removed, closed together by about 2" and sticky taped together. Also chopped 3" off the length, and will be cutting around in inch out of the height. The rear end will have to be shaped into the frame for a nice fit after chopping 3 inches off. Will be frisco mounting it and making some really low straight cut drag bars off the top clamp. Being frisco mounted means the sporty pump will pick up next to no fuel so I'm going to mod that so that pickup sits down the rear of the tank. Can't find for the life anyone who's modded these pumps to do this, but where's there's a will there's a way.
    I guess I get bored way too quickly

    Haha yeah I like this forum the most, more interesting. Everyone on here's doing custom stuff and not just bolt on parts off the shelf. And any coverage is good coverage.

    Taking shape. Think once I change the bars it'll look even better but so far I'm loving it

    Played around with bars today. I'm going to move them around a bit tomorrow, not completely happy with the angles, but it's close. Also I over done the length so I could chop them back once the angle I wanted was achieved. Probably take about an inch amd a half off each side to bring them in more. Loving the sexy lines of the bike now



    And an idea of headlight placement. Will be using a smaller headlight like this one off the heritage chop too.

    I must be the only one with no life still working in the shed ok Christmas Eve and most likely will be doing the same on Christmas Day? Oh well keeps me busy. Merry Christmas to you all.

    Bit more on the bars. Lifted them up a touch and gave them a bit more pullback, and cut 3/4" off either end, still think I need to take another inch at least or more off. But overall they're coming along nicely. Surprising, they look really uncomfortable, but with that seat sinking you deep into the bike, and inline springer bringining them in close, they're actually really comfortable for me. You lean forward a little, but not strectched. This tank really goes with the lines from every angle, really happy with how it's coming together. Still need to shorten the length, add internal throttle and I'm going to flush mount the mini warning indicator lights into the bars. Drill the bars and the all they need is the welding finished off, clean up and powder coat

    Love the clean look

    I thought it looked perfect with the Cole Foster tank, but this is shaping up to look even nicer. Good effort mate.

    No you're not the only one working on the bike on xmas, I am too LOL
    I love the bars and tank, they have a mean look together, but I don't like the tank to sit that high on the backbone...just my opinion obviously, but maybe it would look the best if the highest point of the tank was level with the highest point of the bars, and the springs just sticking out on their own

    Thanks man! I did chop too much hieght out of the tank, will be adding some back but only 1/2" I think will make all the difference, and that will be half inch down not up so that will cover some more of the back bone, but as you can see the tanks just sitting there, it's not mounted. I've spent about 10 hours doing no work at all, just moving the tank around and starring at the bike trying to make it all work together right. With so many different lines to consider, it's taken a lot of tweaking. The look I'm going for is having the bars lower then the tank, infact im thinking of going lower off the top clamp, I want a full low drag look and feel, but I did try the bars at the top of the tank to start with and it was a big no no with this style of bars. It really did not look right at all on this bike. Maybe some classic drag bars but not these straight cut bars it just doesn't look right with this bike in particular
    I tried lowering the tank down at the front, but it gave the bike a flat look, no shape, no curve, no beef to the front. I've tried it at so many heights, angles, positions and an inch down and lower and it starts to look way too flat, so will give the tank more depth and see if that gives it a better fit. But it's just sitting there, it's not the exact final position, but with 1/2" more depth around the bottom of the tank, I may lower the front 1/4" at most, that would then completely cover the backbone and give a better line down onto the seat and frame
