The seat will be cut way down and a bump put on the back. Planning on trying to make the first one out of cold rolled, but I would like to make one out of aluminum eventually with radiused edges. Got a sheet of al. to mess around with but that'll probably come much later. It's ugly.









Smoother, slimmer, more organic. Lots of little italian bikes with and without laydown motors had beautiful tanks.
You could also google 50cc-125cc Yamaha racers to keep it in the family.
