K Tank on a Yamaha
« on: December 04, 2017, 02:11:32 PM »
Not sure what to think here! I've seen a pic of a Honda CB tank on an R-bike. The sky is the limit I suppose.

It's a Yamaha and I don't think it is a BMW tank.

My eyes could be deceiving me, but it looks like a K series tank or very similar to one.

At least he put a badge on it to make it look more authentic.  :2thumbup:

Alloy spokes riveted to the alloy rims, on the CBX. They were called Comstar wheels.
