That looks really cool. What are you doing with the other side of the tank, are you removing the dent/scrape, or leaving it?

Nice work.
Have you considered installing the clear tube vertically more towards the front and not over the logo?

Haha no worries, the tig does a fine job, cleaner than regular weld, that is why I am not welding it. That would add More character to the logo, worn, burned, rusty ?
Yea, ive been welding tig professionally for 11 years now, i would know its gonna burn off a cm or two of the paint closest to the weld. Post the results!

Kind reminds me of the "Rusty Trumpet", but in blue instead of rust.

Is this the bike you're putting the tank on? Because it looks pretty stellar already! I'm slowly working my way through that thread looking for inspiration and I remembered your location because I'm also in Illinois.
hey thanks, yes that is my bike and yes im putting the tank on that, switching the tank once in a while is no big deal. but thanks,
hit me up whenever you are riding in the area, whenever i don't have a destination i go west towards dekalb.
