how is the aluminum with heat disipation??

I'm wondering what the tanks would feel like on a 100F riding day..

Spray 'm in nice orange or something.Than there should not be so much difference with the ones you have right now. But aluminum reflects (although it's not chrome) some of the heat, so the way Barbasma's bike is right now, the tanks should remain cooler.

many custom tanks for rallys are made like this... so no problems...

Holy dent fest ! Those things would look like hammered rain gutters after a year or so I am afraid. That would be under my use of course. Others may vary I am sure. Nice craftsmanship however. And a good price.

dents are better than cracks.

those are great looking tanks and a verry good price too! But I'm happy with the stockers, for now.

I'm a good fabricator but I've always wanted to apprentice under someone to learn to build alluminum tanks. To bad it's half way around the world from me!

Thats an Adventure? Looks absolutely awesome...

So the headlight from an EXC and the SM side panels are more or less interchangeable are they?

what else has been done to it (other than the pipes)


hmmm, perhaps i would be better off with an adventure and that kit than a Super Enduro???

Those are very cool.


I'm having trouble justifying a re-valve of my front shocks, let alone buying a new set of aluminium tanks.

Wow, at first glance I wasn't sure either. Everyone has been saying it's just a big dirtbike. Now I believe them.

I want one too! I'm going to start looking for a very used cheap early model 950. I saved the picture, so I'll be over this for awhile!
