Model fuel tank gets fitted to bike

So, I took the styrofoam model fuel tank over to Chris' workshop and with a little bit of alteration fitted it to the tank. Everyone was impressed and felt the shape suited the whole Flattracker / Streettracker idea. Chris now had a 3D forma to follow and we discussed at length how to make the tank before cutting some templates for the flat metal sheets that would make up the finished tank.

The blue tape denotes the flat line we are trying to achieve with the tank and seat unit to make the bike look like a Flattracker. My Styrofoam fuel tank only rested onto of the frame whereas the real one will protrude through the frame and follow the blue line.

Shamfa's workshop. An Alladin's cave of project bikes, cars and all the welding and fabrication kit a man could ever want :-)
