Yeah I've been using American Classic Motors since getting dicked around by KC INTERNATIONAL and they seem to have their stuff together so far.

Nah this is the Weapon frame, it's -2 on the upstretch. Other than that the specs are the same as your Nemesis.

The way I have the tank set makes it look less "prostreet" huh? I'm kinda going for an extreme bobber look.

It is 5" diameter and 11" long. I had to modify it to work but I got the tank at a really cheap price so it was worth the extra effort. I also didn't want to use a smaller bag. I've got it mounted now, I'll post pictures of it later today.

I think so, I plan on welding small gussets to the bottom of the frame tabs when I tear everything back down. But I hear you, it can never be too strong. That's why I'll probably make a rear mount for it too, I'm just still trying to figure out how I want to go about doing it. Probably just a center tab, so it will have 3 mount points


What have you guys found for battery boxes? I may fab one, but if there are some nice ones out there for cheap I would rather just buy it.

go on the ********* web site and look at how they did it that might help you out. my thought about the way you show it in the pictures would be the vibration and the wieght of the oil moving back and forth in the tank and eventually straining your mounting tabs to the point of breaking. but look at the way they did it (*********) and that might work for you

Thats why I mounted my bag so tight to the frame, I hope I have enough room to mount mine rightside up and have a little room left over for fuses and such. Have to wait and see. With sealed batterys these days mounting on the side is no big deal though right?

started mounting the seat, I wish it had more roll in the back. I may not use it, I'm still deciding. Note the BIG BOY springs.
