Default New gas tank

couldn't wait till it's done to post this. The metal fab is about 75% complete. I think it goes with the sissy bar well. Gonna make another seat to go around the point at the end of the tank.

bravo..... thats one hot tank. Have you tested its capacity yet? Any estimates..I have been toying with the idea of a completely custom tank but just haven't bit yet. I deffinitely want more fuel than the little 2.7 mine holds since my accident.

Nice work. Do you have a custom seat to go with it?

I think it will hole somewhere between 2.5-3. we'll see when its done. It'll definately hold more than the tank I am using now

I have the seat I made for the last tank/fender. I'm going to cut the fiberglass pan to fit real tight around the point

Awesome work...I see why the patio stone concrete form is still in the box. Your too busy making a KICK A** bike.

I'm with DRB...Those pipes are awesome in a bloody eardrum kinda way!

Rock on!

P.S....Wish I had welders, torches and bottles of NOS just sitting around.....Can I come over and play?

3 Gallons aint bad. Thats about what stock was. Whats your ideas on paint. Bling Bling... or Dark and Bloody?...(ear). I mean since your making a custom one Might as Well get a custom job on it. Honestly check out www.alsacorp.com for some paint dude. Some of the paint on there is easy as **** to paint. Follow procedure and your done hombre!!! I can see some pinstriping about to go on that tank too..... Where are the front mounts going to be? DETAILS MAN!!!

It'll be flat black still. I was planning to add pinstripes to it. The rear will mount just like stock. The front is still to be decided

This is completely from scratch. I got pissed off at the stock tank so I made a new one how it should have been made in the first place...16 gauge. That stock one is so thin. I didn't notice that one of the rubber cup thingies on the front to hold the tank in place came off when putting the tank back on. I rode about thirty miles...rode 15 then noticed the tank was shaking on one side and got off to check it. A fawking zip tie poked through the tank if that tells you how thin the stocker is. It litterally just split the metal about a 1/2" long and 1/16" wide. It was pouring gas.
