    Default Inline Springer set up

    Another change and I believe another mistake. As you can see I couldn’t turn onto a wide street with this clearance.. Any suggestions as to what could be done here to run these trees and risers without ditching the tank that I had painted a few months back. Thanks for the helpful responses

    What about a further back pic so we can see the entire tank.............

    At this point you will need to ditch the tank as different risers will be ZERO help for clearing the tank.............

    Just move the tank back; may need to get creative with the back mount.

    oh, and THIS IS NOT TECH. POST IN REGULAR SECTION.

    What about a different set of rises that are curved, so closer together near the top...offset ya know...

    or a set of dog bone risers set in low clamps, then you can move them dog bones tight together in the middle if you want. just a quick example:

    Why do you think I keep asking for a pic of the side of the tank???????????

    Of what I have seen of his tank I think he will have to move the tank to a shelf and look at it there............. I don't think it will work on his bike as it is set up now............

    If I slide back the seat mount the frame will look like shit. If I change the tank I just dumped all kinds of coin in paint and tank down the drain.. thanks for the advice/suggestions you guys always have good shit to say����

    This is the reason you build up a project completely before you do ANY PAINT work .........

    I see no way to run that tank without doing major work........

    By the way thanks for the pics........... That will be a beautiful bike when it's done but that tank ain't going to work with that riser setup..........

    I just thought of something, What about something like my setup............... That might get you away from the tank.............

    Instead of offset risers, how about a stepped riser mount...I can see it, so will try to describe it simply; a flat plate that bolts to the top of the back leg of the springer on each side where the riser mount now, the steel plate is raised in the middle, between the rear springer legs, about 1" up, then you can mount your risers to that, closer to the center to miss the tank...may need taller risers, and the mounting bolts for the risers are through from the bottom of the plate and have clearance between the bottom of the plate and the top of the top tree...hope that kinda makes sense.

    Agree that will work just going away from skinny trees/bar set up I was going for but cheaper than new tank and paint work

    Sorry.. But, there's only so many options.

    That frame is really nice. It would be a shame to mess it up for the sake of a tank.

    Maybe you can sell it? Like you say, it looks like it is worth some coin.

    Tri, I was thinking about what you described..... You might be on to something...... Are you talking about something like a center post???? Not sure how it would look but it won't hit the tank for sure..........
