it seems the villians are everywhere when we look on this site for instance. I have one on my CFL, and honestly I have not seen another on any bike, anywhere ive ridden or been around here. Ive seen a few in so cal, and on a couple bikes at a few runs. But everywhere may be an overstatement. I got mine for my bike because I really like the look of it and the quality/ simplicity. Not to mention it does hold some gas. one thing I have seen out there that I think is really nice is the mini villian. Cant remember who made it though. I kinda agree with Tod too look at the sportys, mustangs, aliens, and of course the pro street pointy tanks, lots of those out there. They have all more or less been done. Nothing new under the sun.

I personally like the villain just couldnt put it on my sporty at the time. (too long)

And I agree King tanks are everywhere (seen several on big bikes) and mustang also, its just one of those tanks that will be around forever because of their "style" Simple, functional.

For me...it seem to fit the style I was going for on my bike and I also like a "clean" looking tank. I like all styles though; Coffin tanks, sporty,mustang,etc. Really depends on the bike.

I used a Independent tank that was designed nearly exactly like the Villian tank. I think the 'Villian' tank set it own standard kinda like the Mustangs and Sporty tanks. The Villian was an excellent addition to the line up. That would be sweet to get a hold of an original WCC Villian rather than the Chinese remakes!!! Those Villians are also bitchen narrowed and cut down. Great project tanks, although I have never cut one up!

Hit my website link and look at the home page. You can't tell me that the Army Ranger riding the bitchin Shovel with the Villian tank is a common sight!!!

I guess I am in the minority, and I guess I put the peanut or mustang tank in a differnt class because of its age. I bet that the Villian in the most sold tank since 2002, I myself have never used one. They just seem very popular, and some bike I see with them I think would look better with different tank. That opinion also was formed that from a majority of the people I talk to that have them (here in the NW), and only have them because they originated at WCC.

Not necessarily. I don't see anything special about them myself. But then again I don't get to excited about any tank, long as they do what there designed for and hold gas......unless it's one of Vision's tanks....now thats art.
