    Good job on the forwards. Now's your chance to get funky with an artistic shifter rod.
    Yes I will get my chance for the artistic shifter rod.
    When you are talking about the seat do you mean the back of the seat will be lower than the front of the seat?

    Yeah ....I don't like that. I want the seat level when I sit on it. I agree.
    This Tuesday (January) I will be getting the gas tank. Finally will see how it will look.

    It really needs to be level when no one is sitting on it....

    I got the gas tank that I ordered. Extra wide Mustang gas tank.
    It meets all of the requirements.
    Deep tunnel, 3 gallons, left side petcock, length of tank including mount tabs the right length.
    The 3.3 gallon tank was too long. This tank is 12 inches wide at the front.
    This tank is all TIG welded. $184.00 worth it for the good TIG welding

    Here is some initial photos. Comments?

    I had to weld together two bushings for the tube to go through the frame.
    Home Depot, Lowe's, and Ace hardware did not have any steel tubing. Grrrrr.
