Thanks for the jackshaft link and info curtis.
Tom, I have used Loctite on all the mounts and connecting points, plus beefed up the tab mounts on the fenders. But I'll watch it closely.
I can see how a loose fender could be very nasty. I appreciate the heads-up. I think the tank is from an early 60's Yamaha. Not sure, though.
I got it for $20 at a motorcycle junk yard. The 45 bucks to clean the rust and too much $$$ to the body guy to take out some dents.
Mounted it at the cross bar with a motor mount. Beside the motor and trans, I have more money in the tank than anywhere else on the bike.
Hahahaha! Didn't mean to do that!
xseler, the casino is "supposed to" open again before the end of September. Hard to believe it's just been "sitting there" closed for such a long time.
I added a rack and a small bag, plus a wireless brake light (under the seat...you, can see it from the rear, but it doesn't jump out to ruin the bike's lines.
Got a Velocity mount for the cell phone to take a few movies and an app that will let the phone act as a speedo and odo.
