It looks good! You asked. I personally liked it better without the tank. If the tank stays then the fenders have to be installed. Very cool bike

Thank you, and I did ask for opinions and I value yours! Thing that sucks is bought a set of fenders for it and the front was to far gone...guy said great shape and couldn't see in pictures well, so my bad! Rear is in great shape, now in search of a nice'40 DX front fender so could be a while. My painter doesn't want to do up rear until he's doing both! Urgh
