For the couple of minutes it takes me to upload to photo bucket and copy the URL across to the post, I have already been paid back many times over by yourself and others on this good forum - especially  SteveC#222 -  you could give him my beer for the XBR manual on CD alone.
However, if you're gonna insist...mine's a pint of best! Cheers, Michael!

Is that the real rough tank i sent you Michael, or was it just used for practicing on?

Morning Tim. Yes mate it is the really rough tank you sent over and yes it is proving invaluable for practising on. So thanks again. The metal is wafer thin in places which is making things....err, interesting but still good for chopping up to make sure the lines of the bike are good etc before I launch into my decent tank. You should hopefully be able to see the end result at the stafford show. I'll ask Matt to post up some more photos for me as I progress with it. (If he doesn't mind?)
Cheers..Michael

Morning chaps, been working away all week so just seen the pics that Matt posted up (thanks Matt) thanks for all the positive comments, had a slight change of plan regarding the engine that's going into the "tracker" I've bought the fmx engine back off big bro so decided to drop that one in and keep my tuned XBR engine for the ikuzawa. I'll keep you all posted of any developments.
Cheers, Michael

Michael's update:
"just finished stripping my good tank ready for the de seaming to start, also got a lovely flush fitting petrol cap that I'm going to weld in while the tank is stripped back. Hopefully the next time you see a pic of it, it will be a slightly different shape and seamless"
