I always like Sporty tanks best.
Cam's tank looks right on it in terms of lines/curves/angles matching. It will give u a particular look, way different to the look a Sporty tank will give you.
I think u should decide exactly what sort of overall look/theme u r going for, then you will know which one fits into your vision.
If you have a defined vision then all your decisions will flow in line with that & get your bike heading a certain direction. With mine, I decided I wanted to use styling cues from the stock early 60's Sporties. So it helped me find what i wanted.
Hope that helps. Of course the only rule is that you can do whatever you like!
Looks like the Sporty tank would need modding (Frisco'd?) to get it sitting at the right angle. Then u would to change the bars...?
The rear guard looks like its gonna be perfect.
It's gonna be a great lookin bike.

Cam's tank. That curved line above the engine with that I-beam rocks. But then I'd build another one and put that Sporty tank on cause it looks good too.

Go with the curvy tank, then you could weld some spider webs to the outside of it. Laughing ha ha just kidding mate, it looks like the bike was made with the cams tank in mind. and i agree with Irish, build another one to put the sporty tank on
