    Out of curiousity I loosely mounted an early Atlas/Manxman US style tank on my bitsa Atlas. The seat is the more common later seat as is the rear mud guard. Looks like the small tank is approximately two inches shorter than than the more common large tank. I assume, and would be curious for someone to confirm, that the dzus fastener hole in the rear mud guard supplied with the small tank bikes is two inches further forward than on the more common large tank bikes. 20180801_210228_HDR.jpg 20180801_210401.jpg

    Yes, saw that. Pictures highlight the difference. Saw your bike photo in the other thread as well, although the young lady was so attractive it was hard to focus on the bike.

    It is unfortunate we can't see more of the bike, ...... or more leg.
