Waiting for my filler flange and cap out of sunny England to see how it will sit on the right side. Will pic up then.

Progress

OK - so the flange is still somewhere between here and the mother land, cant do much about that, so Ive been back at it. Ive joined the two halves to the centre section. That was easy enough but getting it on and off the subframe was another matter. I know the individual tanks would have been so much easier to make - but thats the easy way out. So back into the shed and a little bit later I have a totally integrated unit that slides on and off the subframe (once its removed from the bike). Thats was the hardest bit of the project so far - more complicated that I thought.
Anyway now Ive just got to fair and finish the tank (need the filler and hardware to fit it up then do the tail unit. One consession I will be making is rebating the tanks to fit the pillion pegs - 2 reasons there;
1. Wife does pillion now and again and the tank will be a biarch to take off once its on,
2. If I need to pillion friends when out on longer rides (injured person or bike)

Ive added a couple of pics here:

(yeah I know - get a photosharing acc - I will )

I'll post up more when I get the bits and pieces. And the CF bashie looks great - need to fit that as well

excellent work Pete. Are you going to be applying fiber glass/CF/kevlar over the styrofoam? If so, have you allowed enough clearance between your form (foam) and the frame to allow the growth in dimensions? Or are you making a plug, then mold THEN the finished product in the mold?

I like the idea of keeping the passenger pegs, its the tie down spot for Gaint Loop bags among others. Soft luggage will be mandatory so having a secure spot to lash it to makes good sense.

No chance of "indenting" the tanks and having a handle for lifting (aka 690 rr) ? The "indent" seems easy, not sure how you'd mount a hnadle into it though, I'll leave those pesky details to you

Looking good, look forward to seeing the tail section.

Things are taking shape nicely. Deadly can't wait to see them mounted on your bike.

Deadly does seem keen - anyone would think he'd like one
The 950 is back together and the tank is in the shed in glass. Needs finishing then moulding before I'll have the finished part. Can say it'll be done this year, (other projects need finishing) but it will be just as soon as I can.
Just out of interest - (other than Deadly) is anyone else interested in one for their bike. Guessing pretty close to 20lt extra fuel on board, but thats yet to be confirmed till I fill it.

Pete
