I have a 2002 1200 Custom and I really want to change out the tank for a larger capacity. I also want it to look good. I would prefer to have a dash on it as well. Has anyone had any experience with this and if so which is the best tank to go with? I have looked at JP Cycles, Kustomerks, etc, and it seems the largest capacity is 4 Gallons. I like to do long rides. Anyone have any suggestions? :yikes

Fattank (http://www.fattank.com) sells a 5.5 gallon tank for the Sportster, but it ain't cheap. Also do a google search for AirTech, they make a 6 gallon tank, but it's styled more towards the cafe racers.

Sounds interesteing and probably looks cool, but they've got some serious 'nads wanting you to send them money just to get "more information" I know, overhead...blah...blah... What that tells me is rinky-dink.
