Thanks everyone! After consideration I have decided to keep the tank & put it into use ASAP. Cosmetics are of little issue here, the bike gets plenty of envious attention all by its self. Many boonters like the idea of a bike that can easily go up & down the long dirt roads, and handle the asphalt too, for the small run to town for goodies, grocery's, pick up the post, etc. I think I might eventually get a few converts around here yet! Bahl tracks to you, m.
