Very nice Dave! I love the choice for relocating the ignition switch.
  

Keep your bike in good repair:  motorcycle boots are not comfortable for walking.

Nice job, like it a lot Smiley What speedo and fuel filler did you use? I'm doing something similar and like the look of those Wink

How did you mount the tank? I've got an R80 tank and the front mounting bar is much higher on that than the original R65 tank - would be very interested in seeing your solution Smiley

Cheers Sam
  

Thanks,
Sam

hi sam
the tank was from a r100rs so the front mount was fine i only had to fix the rear end of the tank to the frame with a couple of bolts the only problem was the ls tunnel under the tank is wider than the r100rs so i had to move all the relays and fuse block to under the seat hump

the monza cap was from a company called vonzeti they were on e bay but i can't find them now but they do have a web site
it is a screw in filler cap that comes with a blanking plate to fill the rest of the whole left by the orignal cap but i just filled it in with filler to make it look better


the speedo is from danmoto.com a chinese company but there are uk distributors but they are a bit more expencive i got mine direct from there web site with no problems at all
hope this helps sam
