A little bracket work to get it down and forward and it's good to go. 1972 F9 Bighorn tank.

Nice tank colour, but I find it too short...
It's not in place yet, Gerd. It will be further forward and lower when the brackets are modified. The seat too.
Please show us the final result. Thanks!
Will do !
It's going to look really good. I had a couple of F7 175cc enduros forty-something years ago. I''ve always wanted to do a scrambler with an F7, or F9 tank. Really suits the W650, and has the same DNA. Aside from fabbing brackets, is the tank's tunnel a good fit over the W650's frame?
Yes, it looks like it will fit fine over the frame. It's just that the original F9 brackets sticks too far into the tunnel. And, the rear bracket has a 30 something downward angle that needs to be altered and reconstructed to fit the original two-hole mount.
Will be worth the effort! Looking forward to seeing the completed project, Ståle.
Me too, Rocky :)
