Well my new tank came in, since its a XJ750 tank its shaped a tad different as its a larger capacity tank. Right now its black but I think Im still going to strip it and clear it raw.

Bike is looking real good man.

When is it going to be done? For spring?

And maybe next winter your truck can make it inside.

Yea, it will be done for spring. I wish I had the ability to get my truck into the basement its warm down there.

Heres the new tank. first is a good comparison of the two tanks, new one is on the right.

Guy on XJbikes put some ugly tank on his 750 and took this off, so I bought it off him.

I got my switches installed, and I hooked the harness up enough to turn the motor over and make sure I had spark.

It runs, but since its aircooled I didnt get a chance to shut it down and restart it since it was getting pretty hot, I let it cool down. So maybe later tonight Ill try and start it again and see if it will start on its own.
