Tank Update

Just some pics of the 80 Kawasaki tank that I've been modifying. I sat it on the bike and it's about 4 1/2" short (story of my life, i know hahaha ) so my plan is to cut the tail end off and stretch it in the middle to lengthen the tank. I have never done this before so we'll see how it goes. Sure wish I had an english wheel and a panishing hammer which would make the job so much easier and nicer, but I don't, so I just make due with hand tools. More pics to follow later. The guys who build and modify gas tanks sure make it look easy bending, shrinking and forming metal don't they but I'm here to tell ya it's far from easy.
