    Chopper City has a good one.
    You need a overflow tank in the worst way because the radiator will pump out water and replace it with air causing erosion and the need for a new radiator. Replaced some with that problem and it is expensive $900 plus.

    The best set up I've seen is the plastic overflow tank Lamont mounted behind his left side cover . I did the same but with a chrome overflow tank I had . Difference , $$$$ . I guess Lamont and I both prefer not hanging a bunch of stuff exposed off our frame when it can function just as well hidden some where .

    If you look close here is the one I put in trikes. This shot is the right side and that big kicker speaker is on the gas tank and my overflow tank is behind my ammo box.

    Unless someone insists I will mount the bottle under the body panels or the side cover. I just went out to take a couple of pictures but my battery is dead in my camera. I put it on the charger and will do it this afternoon.

    I don't have any pictures of Lamonts set up but mine is simply the chrome overflow tank that most guys run mounted on the rear down tube under the left side cover out of sight more or less over the belt .

    Barry , actually the saying goes " Chrome won't get home but it may get you layed "
