Alloy Cafe Racer Tank

A while back, I posted an SR500 that was located in Bangkok. Here’s a tank from the same seller. I am guessing that he gets his parts as factory seconds from Japan given that the last few tanks (and this one) have a repair made to them. However, the repair in this case is on the underside of the tank.

I tend to post a lot of tanks, as I think cafe racers are defined in part by the shape of the tank. I have to admit that my Sportster doesn’t have tank shape going for it. The peanut tank just looks plain out of place. When I get some money, perhaps I will order one of these…
