Rubber-mount flatside tanks in final position, no interference with front forks... seat in final position.

Cool, I was looking at a bobber roller kit from Russell Mitchell and it has a six gallon tank. I have no idea what I'd use for an engine?

What's going in your project?

This engine is mild by S&S standards, a touring engine (4.125" x 4.125" square bore x stroke) if you like. Well into the 100+ HP/Torque club... so an upgraded drive train was in order. A bit out of focus, but behind the rear wheel is a box with a Compu-Fire Gen 3 starter. (Pingel fuel valve on top of box.)

2 into 1 exhaust, (Frank Drago) Dragula 3-steppipe, black ceramic, 2.55 inch baffle, straight tip. Flat, wide torque band is the goal... a bit of Harley sound doesn't hurt my feelings. Primo Brute IV Extreme 3" belt drive should get power to the Baker 5-speed, and chain final drive.
