So by changing the size of the bubbles from the joint between the tank & the body of the bike to the bottom of the engine I ended up with a shape that I was happy with.
Have posted the two finished versions with the front spokes sat differently;

So off I went back to look at the bike I started off trying to emulate (OK copy :lol: )
The one that popped earlier, I liked the look of the roll through effect on the grenn bodied bike so tried to do a variation with Billy's bike, I think it looks shiek.
A good old fashioned hell's angels chopper bike & I'm very pleased with the look of the back wheel, so if the second attempt hadn't popped I might never have got to the finished version of the bike, sometimes life is strange.
I also very much like the look of the front forks as well, although perhaps the engine does still need a little bit of work on.
So this is how I spent my day bike building :lol:  :roll:
