    Hey man that bike is tight. As for gas tank options....do you have a welder? That would be sick with a Diamond plate aluminium tank, I'm in the process of making one right now.

    barebones, looks great! BUT,,, not to be a buzz kill, you may run into some carb problems due to the angle of your motor. Your motor needs to be mounted so the carb is level for the proper float bowl / jet function, but your mount may work fine. I will look forward to your updates.

    Why not change the angle of the carburator/intake instead of the whole motor..?

    seems the easier thing to do plus I wouldn't wanna mess up that profile. You can hardly even tell there is a motor. I'm with mekano, just make or get a diffent intake to level it out.
