Ditto that. I was looking into an Aux tank set up myself and well the only thing available it pretty funky looking so I had to pass.

Peace

For those who have done the ear shave, has any one though to utilizing the area of the air box for fuel? Seems about the only place one could inconspicuously place a fuel reservoir.

You could add onto the stock tank to utilize the space left by the removal of the air box.
or you could move the coils and electrics up under the tank, and build a tank to fit under the seat.
or modify a set of fatbobs or a big cruiser tank to fit. Making brackets to mount tanks isn't all that difficult.

I accidently increased the vulcan tank on my honda to a hair over 4 gallons when I was using water pressure to pop out some dents. even with blocks of wood in the tunnel to prevent it, and straps holding the bloclks in and the tank from splitting, the tunnel collapsed untill it ran into the wood. I don't recommend this unless you know what you are doing.

85 VN750 basketcase ( yes its a true 750, and no smog controls, its good to be Canadian)
It will have
a rebuilt 96 top end, rebuilt 85 bottom end
degoated, Eared
stripped, lowered, raked, bobbed,
reed valve boxes shaved
ported and polished
balanced
right side dump exhaust
heads and cylinders shaved for compression
looking for smoothbore sidedraft carbs
possibly fat bob tanks
modified vn800 or sportster drag pipes or I'll just make some

I just got a steal on a tank from a 1500. It looks like the tunnel is just as wide if not more so than on my stock tank. I won't we able to set it on the frame and take any measurements until I get the frame back from the powdercoater though.
