    I believe rc is referring to the second pic.

    I really like both tanks but they are on two different builds, taken at two different angles. Either one looks fine by me ;)

    That would be off a General moped.

    Derringer bought hundreds of those NOS General tanks from a moped place in the Mid West years ago.

    Huh? Really? The sylvester tanke? Both bikes are black......what does silver look like if you're color-blind?

    There's a total of 5 two-wheelers, with two of them as the focal point, in two pictures.
    One of them has a number plate on it.

    Really hard to answer, Fatandre. Both are very fitting on the bikes they are on but kinda think they might not look as good if they were swapped around.

    Really like them both a lot. Thinking it depends on the end appearance your going for. The bottom one has a very American look while the upper has a more European sport look.

    I like most all of the custom built tanker style fuel tanks. Either of the two, work for me. However, I do wish they (fabricators) of the custom tanks wold invest in an English Wheel and "curve" them. Just me. Wait, perhaps, I'll get an English wheel and make my own. LOL!

    I think the silver tank, in the top picture is the best looking. But it's really the one that you like that matters . your bike , your style---that is the key here .......
