Yes indeed, the tank is big. I don't mind. Keep in mind the goal is a scrambler (less need to look fast compared to a cafe racer), it does not yet have shocks installed (yes to fotoguzzi, I will add shocks) and no fenders & exhausts yet. Also no carbs & filters. Adding all those will add to the body of the total bike and make the tank look smaller again. I'll update once I have those installed with another picture:).

Thanks for the tip on ACF-50, I'll buy that.

 

Also maybe nice to share: rate my u-joint. Discovered upon removal of the rear swingarm, did not notice anything during driving....

That'll buff out.. but if you would want, they are rebuildable. Cheap.

Already have a new one installed. The old one was damaged beyond the outer races of the bearings and I did not want to try and resque it with the risk of hairline cracks or anything like that...

Yah, watch out for those "hairline cracks!"

So the front fender is brushed aluminium, which I like. The rear one is rolled aluminium. Any idea how I can get the surface finish on the rear fender close to the front one?
