Gas tank Swap advise
« on: April 04, 2017, 05:45:38 PM »
I hate my tank 92NH750 looks too much like a cruiser tank and too wide which makes my knees sticking out more then I like.
Found this

CB900F CB1100F Tank
love the tank but not sure if it will fit without major work. Any ideas?

Those will fit with the same amount of modification as any older tank. You'll have to cut the mounts off the frame and weld new ones in a different spot. I personally don't like those tanks on our frames. It never seems to sit right. The older 70s cb tanks look great on our bike though, but need the same modifications

Thank you good advise.This is the only part of this bike that bothers me great deal.I think Honda was trying to appeal both standard and cruiser crowd with this tank but Euro models got lot cooler version.
I'll be looking out for older CB tank although hard to find one without all insides rusted out.
Thank you

Keep your eyes out for the euro tank. I picked one up for $30, my neighbor got a hold of one too, but he paid an arm and a leg. They're a direct bolt on and uses the NH petcock. Good luck!

I thought you were doing a Crocodile Dundee, until I followed the link.
