    Tattoo, did you narrow that tank, from the angle of the picture I am not certain. If you did that is a very cool idea, how many gallons are left in there?

    It's just a hand shift stock tank that I added the scoops to. So it's the same gallon tanks... It looks a little wider looking at it from the top...

    Tell ya an idea that I've been toying with in my head....

    Take a set of the WLR re-pop tanks and raise the mounting position up on the frame about two inches.....

    Clear as mud, right?

    I was checking these out as well, but I have decided I want to move away from the split tanks and go with a "one-piece".

    The question now is how many gallons can I live with. Would prefer three plus an emergency bottle. I think this one is an extra quart. Click image for larger version.

    It depends more on how far do you want to ride before you need to get gas??? My pan will go around 100 miles before I need gas again.... And that's about where I'm ready to stop and get gas on a rigid these days... LOL

    I'm with you 100 miles would be just about right. If I remember correctly my last Panhead got about 30-35 MPG. This one will be a little lighter, but not that much ( of course I am about 25 lbs heavier so zero net sum on that one! )

    I am looking at Prescott to Phoenix at right about 100 miles and ( assuming we do move to Prescott ) that will be the longest regular ride I will be making so maybe 2 gallons would work for me. That would mean one stop about half way which would be OK also.

    Choices, choices, choices....

    Great input folks.

    Last night I took to the garage and removed the fatbob mounts, much cleaner looking already.

    Now to decide on how many gallons I can live with, 2 or 3.

    @vnygra, did you do the gold leaf work on your tank, looks spectacular! I like the way the front mount uses the speedo cable hole in the frame. That has me thinking!

    Many thanks everyone!

    I keep thinking about this tank. I like it too much but I am wondering how I should mount it?????
    The tank mount is way too close to the neck, I can move that back about 3 inches maximum. Any more and it would be too close to where I want to mount the seat.
    Question:
    Should I relocate the tank mount or should, could I remove the tank mount and drill through the frame and set it there?
    Thanks!
