I got a contact in Austria, who is going to make me a tank at a VERY good price. 580 euro! Money are tight at the moment, so I don't know when exactly I will order it.

Could also go with a fiber tank at half the price, but then I'd have the worry of E85 petrol etc.

It has come to my attention that people think the Bimota tail looks weird. Any of you know a tail that might be suitable for this tail?

Preferrebly it will be prepared for plate and rearlight!

I think the proportions look pretty good on this: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-BSOB5WovdN...350_custom.jpg

I see what you mean, although I'm going with the huge metal tank, and would like something semi-off the shelf.

Looking at this atm.

Obviously this is a very personal decision, and ultimately you are the only one who needs to be happy with it so please take the following with a grain of salt as it's just my opinion...but the long flat tank doesn't really work with the bulbous tail light and curves of that Laverda piece. The tank has Ducati Imola look to it so what about a seat that carries those lines to the back and then echos the curve of tank as it drops to the seat?

I see your point, but I don't know.



I sized it by the shockabsorber, so the ratio should be near.

You know, that doesn't look bad at all. The cut at the back matches the tank well so if you got the scale right then I think you might have something.

The only thing I could jugde it by was the size of the shockabsorber, but the the shock absorber will ofcourse not sit just alike on both bikes.

Just recieved a call from the machinist.

One of the cylinders needed a +2.0mm piston, so the boring can't be done today as planned.

However he had a set of cylinders, that needed 1.5mm pistons, so I got those for free and ordered a set of 1.5mm pistons.

Luckily I can return the +1.00mm pistons... I just need to send them back to Japan :/

Also, today wheels have been ordered.

Its a GPZ305 pair, that will be machined to fit the RD, bolt on!


EDIT:
The picture is only for wheel reference!

Nice. BTW, curious if you wouldn't mind sharing the cost of machining the cylinders? I have an RD 250 I just picked up as a present for my son and it's being checked out now. It only has 6K original miles but I it still may need a fresh re-bore and pistons. Of course if you prefer not to get into costs I completely understand.

150 USD, but this is Denmark, we have some of the highest wages in the world. I doubt it will be comparable :)
