    Default Gas tank advice...newbie

    Hiya guys,
    Newbie, so forgive the dumb questions, just bought a half done bobber, but I don't like the tank, it's too small I think, I was just looking for some suggestions for something bigger, maybe something that will cover the coils and save me the ballsache of re locating them, here's a picture so you get the idea......be gentle with me ...lolClick image for larger version.

    The tank is my favorite part. Clip ons would be first thing I'd change

    to cover your coils you need sumpin with a deeper tunnel. myself id go with a axed set of fatbobs. not many guys do that anymore becuase of the welding and stuff but they are very unusual.

    myself id not worry bout covering the coils as i like my shit out in the open easy to work on.. nice bike by the way.

    Cheers guys, points taken, Hmm I think I'll just keep looking for inspiration, I'm really new to this so I'm not sure what I'm doing, I know that after messing with Jap and Italian rockets for 30 years these things are so simple it's brilliant, I love the basics style, got a little bit to learn I think ...lol

    Hi Blues rock, honest answer is I don't really know as I have only had the bike 5 days, I have raised them from the position in the picture as far as the brake line will allow which was about 3-4 inches, and ridden up and down the road a few times and it felt fine, I haven't had it out on the main roads on a proper run,, but like I said it feels like they will work. There are some carburation issues , so I have stripped that carbs and waiting for bits , so until I can get the carbs rebuilt and back on I guess I won't be able to make a decent decision, I think that I am coming round to some ape hangers to be honest looking at pictures, but I'm going to get the bike running well, then concentrate on aesthetics etc later

    re tunnel the tank... you could widen it while you are at it if you feel its too small.
