Yeah, I see no speedo on the bike so no way to track fuel consumption.

So far ran into a couple issues. One I made a frame for battery and placed it directly under fake tank. No clearance at all which worked out in my favor since battery will not move around. Con is battery is on swingarm and tank not so by doing this bike is now rigid and I do not like idea of all that weight on top of battery so I option I might do is now get smaller tank and cut. I need at least 2 inches between battery and tank for movement.

you can ditch the coolant reservoir and make a battery tray, that way your battery will sit lower.

I personally think it looks a bit largish but may look okay if it was narrowed a bit. I think you will need to look at moving the battery down if you want to run with that tank under there.

yeah I wanted to use a 5" tank , but went to local scrap yard and found the air tanks for less than 8 bucks. I spent an additional maybe 20 since I did have to go to a local shop and have them weld some parts. I figured for 30 bucks I can make it work. I still need to cut the length some among other things. Once painted I hope it doesn't look too bad. Paint will be around another 10 - 15 bucks since I can paint myself.

worst case I can always scrap and look for smaller tank or even a used fire extinguisher .
