The front mounts are different. You might be able to make it work though the tunnel looks about right.

I never heard of an "EN500 Nomad"....the Nomad series was much larger, and were VNs....Im guessing its a VN1500 Nomad tank....and yep....the tunnel is more than fine....like on the Meanie....adding mounting points is easy if you have a welder....

Arizona though Vinny....yer gonna spend $300 on this by time yer done....look for same that needs paint or has dents.....and Im almost SURE its off a VN 1500.....

Looks like a EN500 tank.

The early bubf tank will fit easily with minor adjustment to the front mounts. . Either new spacers need to be made, or something along this lines. Our an adapter plate is needed. I don't remember which.
The en500 would work with about the same amount of work. I have seen both tanks on the 750

Thinking that rear fender might work too, then the seat.
