I finally decided on an approach to the Norton. Mild cafe treatment. After all, it is a true period cafe racer such as would have graced the parking lot of the Ace or the Busy Bee. That decision meant that the original tank would be kept and I ordered a steel replica. It looked pretty good, and the holes seemed to line up ok. A quick picture confirmed that it would look good too. I almost wished it could stay as-is. I prepped it for paint along with the side panels and handed it to a pro. The Caswell tank sealer also arrived. Enough for two tanks so this one and the Yamaha tank will get the treatment.
