    I don't know for sure. I bought the bike built that way. It was a hardtail and it was raked out some. Most ppl have never felt suspension collapse on any motorcycle. You have to really get into a corner and just about be dragging a peg at least over 40 before it happens.

    Beautiful build camlifter.

    About fiberglass tanks. Did some research and it seems that fiberglass doesn't hold up well to gasoline, at least without a lining like Creme or a similar product. Seems the fiberglass begins to break down and you end up with a plastic coating in your carb.

    I'm going to head out to a plastics factory this week and check out what it takes to make a mold for blow molding plastic tanks. Can't imagine they'd be too expensive to make once a mold is made.

    Wondering if anyone else has looked into blow molding or knows anything about it.

    the pipe is a pocket bike pipe that was cut up and rewelded to fit this bike, nothing wrong with fiber glass tanks, some of the 70's british bikes came with fiberglass tanks. you just have to coat the insides if your going to use gas with ethanol in it. thanks everyone for the kuddos.

    yeah, it's a few inchs longer than stock and kicks out to the side. not much change in performance, i've since found that shorter is better for power,
