My tanks are in aluminium, really lighter than the original. The rear tank is also the frame, there is not the original under seat frame, just the tank. I didn't get the weight of the bike jet but it is really lighter than the stock one. At least 20 kg less.
I would NOT have guessed lighter. This is just phenomenal work.

GPMUCCI, this is a rewarding result . Although it is a bit heavy silhouette, it is very impressive. How many kilometers in one tank fill ?

Nice ride and I would love to own one....however....if I was given the choice....and I was to choose between yours and something
along the same lines. Well...I would choose (or build) the one below. Afterall....this is the Africa Twin thread...so I can say that.

Hello Dudes,

I am back in the gang as this week I bought a nice RD04. This is a return to my roots for me as my first Africa Twin was a RD04 and I really liked that bike. Since then I have had a KTM 950ADV (still have it, awesome bike) and then also had a RD03 and a RD07A but for me they weren't the same as my first bike so when this one came up for sale I didn't hesitate.

The bike is a testiment to the previous owner as he has kept it a great condition......
