If you can get your hands on one of the horseshoe softail oil tanks to use for a visual do it. Even if you are only borrowing one from a shop for an afternoon. Then you can take photos to do comparisons and think about it. To be fair the stock tank isn't horrible but the shape is a bit in contrast to your overall design. Perhaps if you rattle can it silver so it more closely matches the body it might blend more and give you less of a poke in the eye. I think it may just be the fact that your body work is silver, then the black oil tank, then the chrome primary. It kind of sticks out in between them.
