Default Gas tank swap?

I have a cb 750 and I want to put either somekind of sportbike gas tank or a Ducati gas tank that my friend would sell me for cheap would it fit my cb 750? Also I am not really to mechanically inclined so will it be a lot of work because I don't really like a lot of manual labor to be honest. I know it's a stupid question

Default Re: Gas tank swap?

Odds are that no modern sportbike tank will swap easily to your cb. Most bikes now use aluminum perimeter frames instead of a steel tube backbone. Your tank is made to fit on a backbone frame. Your best bet for a swap will be to find another backbone-framed bike that has a tank you like.

What you've got:


What you want to swap from:


It can be done, but probably not very easy, and certainly not without manual labor.

Default Re: Gas tank swap?

it can but it will take work and may not come out the way you want. Unless Im wrong, you'll have to make a custom tunnel and weld it on the modern tank. THen it may come so far out the sides that it might not look right

I does what I likes and I likes what I do

Does this include even the ducati sport gas tank? Cause I like the Hammerhead look of it and I just bought a cb400 trying to make a cafe racer. And I never liked those streamlined gas tanks but his ducati sport tank I like will it fit? It looks the same kind of frame and it will be cheaper than buying a custom built one online and getting it shipped here. Thoughts?
