dont stretch the tank or you will alter the bars/seat/foot controls geometry.....in other words it would be a long reach to the bars cos you would be sitting further back

better to stretch the seat

if you stretch the swinging arm as well you are getting into an American style of customisation

if you lower it as well its a style called 'slammed'

supposed to work like a dragster......great for straight line speed, just dont try to go round corners

nice custom bike me like. So just cut behind the tank, and make a custom seat to fit when stretched, if I read your message right paul

by how much have you got to lengthen the seat? (or by how much have you lengthened the frame?)

I went the other way and lengthened the swing arm on my mad to the max katana nice start Jim I think you will find a few knock on problems as you build it.
