    There she is.Kind of a matte chrome but I think it will work with the look of the bike.

    From that overpriced bicyclebones ebay guy.It came as you see it so it saved me a paint job at least lol.
    I tried to find an original but couldnt find one.

    yeah i feel ya man.I think a decent original tank would cost as much or more,saw a cool red one go higher recently.I wanted the wing tank so this saved me some cash,the stencil kit is pricey.

    Just a few small things left,headbadge,maybe a chainguard(not sure).Going to have to shim the sprocket because it just baaareeelllyy touches the rear tire.

    That looks Really Cool! The fat tires and white rims are awesome. I like the tank. Everything goes really well together. Nice job!
