Default Gas Tank Options for Minibike

So I need help deciding on a gas tank and location. I have my favorite, but would see what you all like. Not sure it will really influence my decision, but I like adding polls. They are hardly ever useful on here, IMHO. LOL

What do you like?
Tank A?
Tank B?
Tank C?

Big thanks to EZ^2 for the renderings.

Feel free to move it if you want. It's nothing very important and since I already had a thread about the engine, the TC, and now the minibike... I didn't want to start another thread in the minibike section. I see my name too often as is. But I guess it is in the wrong place. It isn't off topic. My apologies to those who feel they were swindled into reading this "on topic" post here.

I thought about that too, but that is where the exhaust is going to go.

I like tanks bc... I like tank b I little bit more than tank c, Tank c looks OK but not good enough to be better than tank b... If tank c were to be better than tank b it would have be better the tank b, if tank c was better than tank b you should go with tank c... If tank b was better the tank c go with tank c...

Tank (a) looks gay and that's not good......

Shield your eyes from A, it's awesomeness is greater than a lock nut and lock washer put together.

I like A more just because at least to me, it looks like it'll have more fuel capacity. Of course looks can be deceiving.

The little mushroom people of Nova Scotia are screaming with horror. LOL
This is a indeed a horrible day for all of Canada and therefore the rest of the world.

I was going to post the blame Canada song, but it is not very PG. I think Bigger, Longer, Uncut was nominated for an Oscar.

I like Option D, the combination of all three--chrome and teardrop shaped.



Mounted between the knees of course where all that nice real estate resides...
