Hi one and all,
first thing is i don't have a Warrior, though i am a mate of Spokes and Gringo who are on here so don't flog me just yet.....though some people have been flogged for admitting they're Spokes' mates!!

I had a Custom bike shop in England for 11 years til i moved to Australia, just about to open a new one here.

I'm about to start doing a "one off" tank for Spokes to give him more fuel capacity and also to make his bike look "different"!!
And believe me it'll be different[/emoticons/emotion-2.gif]

As i'm doing the tank i'll do a write up so you can all see what's involved.

As for my bikes i have a Z650 Hardtail and currently doing a VT1100 hardtail chop which is..........very different!!![/emoticons/emotion-2.gif]

Cheers all.[8D]

Thanks for the welcome!!!!
Badger my shop was not far from you!! Near Ringwood Hants.
This is my Z650 Chop i brought to Aus, was a night mare to get on the road but worth the wait!


All i can say about my VT is, this is the front end i'm using

1970's S&S girders, Honda Civic car wheel, centre removed and laced to a XR600 hub. 175/70/15 tyres front and rear!!
The frame is very mad, so not going to reveal it til the bikes done.
Will post pics of Spokesys tank as i go.

Cheers all[/emoticons/emotion-2.gif]

I hope you have a great time down under. It's not definite yet but my wife and I are considering moving to Oz when I retire. Watch this space.

Welcome to the site Shaun, looking forward to the pics of the tank that you'll be doing. Looks like all of the Brits are leaving here for Oz land, my Bro-in-Law moves over there soon (another Shaun).
