Now here's a Sliverwing owner that thinks like I do. I like some of your ideas.
How about this? OK, so it's a Yamaha, but still inspiring.

Is your bike ABS equipped? If so, a 165/65R13 is about as close to the standard
scooter tire diameter as you are ever going to get while using a car tire. It is
what I have on my Silverwing FSC600A and has had no negative effect on the
ABS system as far as I have been able to determine. If not ABS, then there are
other car tire sizes that may be easier to find and would work just as well.

Hope you get the picture posting figured out. I'd like to see what you develop.

Oh yeah... That Roland Sands Tmax is a real heart breaker. Nice what you can do with a shop full of the right tools and an unlimited budget.

Yaddya think, can a Silverwing front end be converted to a triple tree?

Just a couple of things that caught my eye:

1.  We did have a member that did a second tank once.
He actually  put the second tank in a top box and fed the fuel down into the first one.
Don't know the details, but it made the second tank easily removeable.  
not good for a low CG, but Food for thought.

2. Good looking pegs on A silverwing have only been achieved by 2 people.
And I'm one of them. Laughing  Take a look in my album linked in my sig for some ideas.
