The ErwinSR500 progress

A Hell of a lot of crap cut off the frame, A whole lot more to go. Tank choice will dictate how much of the rear section will be scrap.
Forks, shaved, lowered 2", polished & promptly smudged with grease.
Wheels Powdercoated, tires/mount/balance, inner rotors cleared front and rear, drive side stripped, buffed, &  brought down w/scotch brite, all mounted with stainless.
Tank choices, Anyone?

Love the blue one on the left. Honda CX500 tank might do it justice as well.

tank AND seat choice will dictate the rear section, no?

what's the seat choices, mon frere?

It's not going to have a tail section. a seat and fender of some sort. I would say the rear section from the shock mounts back will go to the scrap guy.

Ashley & Doug Tank choices are from what's on the bench. kind of because of the size of the OIF top tube/ fuel capacity & some of which is, well, this is what we've nailed it down to. I Love the alloy YZ tank as well as the alloy DT 250 tank but both are being used on other projects (benelli 250 & XS 650).
Mike, Yes and the reach around is uncalled for. Anon & McGoo the GT is where my heart is, We'll see what Erwin decides. Thanks For the help-n-words.

Mellow Yellow! I love vintage oddball tanks by the rule is that it must be of the same brand (that's my rule, at least!)
