That actually IS as close as they get. They're tied right to their mount points in that pic

Lumpy, when you wanna change that thing out I've got a nice 130/16 here that was intended for it, but I didn't have the bead breaker bolted to the shop floor yet so it didn't get done. Bring it out and I'll make sure it's sorted with a new tire. Had a guy swing by and get a nicer 16 put on his Shadow 1100, I kept the old Dunlop that came off his bike since I tend to find use for old tires instead of just paying disposal fee's.

Something about this thread makes me not able to type.

I wasn't trying to bang on your tanks. I dig 'em, just didn't realize they sat that far apart. Does anything go in between them?

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

Scored some VN750 wheels with brand new tires. Date codes are only a couple years old, rubber is still extremely pliable, the rims match, and I just went from a 18/16 combo to a 19/15 combo. More of that chop look!

Did a quick test fit. Perfect!

Now come daylight, aka after work, I'm gonna see how well the VN wheel fits the GS forks. Supposedly both are 15mm axles...... Gonna see if the caliper lines up to the rotor or not
