Strange there isn't enough takers as it seemed lots of people were in last time this was discussed.

Lots of difference between talking the talk and walking the walk Wink

When people suddenly have to pony up a grand I expect they suddenly find it's needed for other things.

Think the same thing would happen if I said the Gen1 tanks too Hemi. I know Christmas is on its way too, but even if I had a prepped tank done today it would be the new year before the first one would even be possible.. Not knocking anyone at all. I would do a carbon bog seat if there were enough demand to let me make a living. At the last count just in fuel tanks I am at 17 or 18 RS250 tanks and 10 Falco tanks. So yes I think there is a demand for the Gen1 and Gen2 tanks. But its having £2500 to £3000 to just throw at it and hope I get it back fast enough to let me keep buying materials and all of the other stuff too.Its a juggling act and I will keep going while its just my time being invested. If there are names appear or there end up 6 names for a Gen1 tank and a pattern tank I will do the first one that will cover itself.

Come on guys!

I'm up for a Gen 1 tank.

I'm after an 01-03.

For me, it's a chance not to be missed.

So 5 more needed and a good tank to copy. Big smile

Looks like they do, looks like you need the later small under seat side panels for the earlier bikes to make it look right.

I can understand that totally..
 For me if the Falco tank works it does save a lot of time and money to use the same mould. But if there is enough wanting the correct shape I would still do it.
 As long as I hit the minimum numbers to cover costs for anything I am happy to make it.. Having a minimum number also shows there is some demand too, I feel.  If I cant get 6 to 10 wanting something then I think I may struggle to get even more sales if I cant hit the minimum numbers.

That would be my thoughts (The later one) as well but I'm not in the position to spend a grand on a tank anyway so my preference doesn't really count - at least for the moment.

Looks like the Falco tank will work.. BUT it has the wrong shape in my opinion and although it could work easily it does look very odd and leaves a huge gap between the bottom of the tank and frame. 

SO anyone wanting a Falco tank on their bike.. Yes it can be done... 
Should it be done? Not sure about that one to be honest. 

Shame in some ways as it would have saved making a mould and I could have just made them straight away. But the last thing I want is to make some and then when you get on want a refund because you dont like the look of it...

The earlier rsv like my 2000 has the long under tank side panels but they would still probably catch the back of the tank.
