I didn't take it as a bash at all. That gap is like my ex wifes pussy. And the pics kind of hide where they're being held up at. The front bottom mounts in teh pictures are actually right at the mounts I intend to use on the frame. I intend to make a panel similar to the original harley panel to cover the gap on the tanks. I kinda still want to mount the gauges there, but now that the tanks are sitting in place, I realize how low they sit, and that the backbone of the bike is right there. I may or may not still mount the gauges there, they'll be sitting up above the tank looking like velocity stacks or something. Might not be so pretty.
I was trying to avoid mounting gauges on the bars, but it might need to happen anyway....
Worst case scenario, I grab the headlight bucket and flyscreen from a Buell Blast. Then I got the bucket to mount 6v headlight in, and I've got a place to hide the gauges behind, and it'll look halfway decent.
EDIT. Just looked up Blast parts, realized the flyscreen was remote mounted, not attached to the headlight
