Almost every currently-made BMW motorcycle has single-side swing-arm and no one says they're not strong enought

Any updates?

Do you plan on upgrading the magna suspension and using a car tire in the rear?

Are you making the tank out of steel?

I was thinking of buying a racing fuel cell for my trike build

10 gal tank with fuel pump and sending unit. Will be adding a tank sealer
Getting close to the modified rear end time..Had to lower pump filter to bottom of tank and extend fuel sending unit to read fuel right.

that's looking good. Is there any negatives to using steel as a fuel tank? I'd be worried about sparks and oxidation, but I have no basis for my argument. Just what is inherently coming to me.

Then again, I think there are plenty of steel fuel tanks in the world, so nevermind
