@golfish Thanks!

I have made a "lot" of bad experiences with gas tank sealers. In the end all of them start to flake off sooner or later.
So finally found a shop, they're working on air plane gas tanks and do use a special resin to make the inner coating. Well it's not cheap, but he does up to 400 gas tanks a year and gives life time guarantee. So I thought, let's give it a try.

When that is done, stuff goes out to the painter and then, I really can't wait for final assembly of the bike. I just love when the stuff comes together and you finally see the look of the bike for the first time!

So in the meantime, until the Screamin Demon No. 2 is ready, I can go ride the Screamin Demon No. 1 - that helps a lot to bridge the wait to move on with No. 2

a local shop of world renown that restores warbirds from across the world uses a product they call "cherry juice."

he insists it's the exact same thing as redkote.

looking good, sir!

@Poop, thanks!

While parts are at the paint shop (unfortunately they are pretty busy - will take approx. 3 weeks to finally get stuff back), the mounting bracket for the pipes is done and already powder coated black - to make is disapear behing the pipes/in the frame.

Pipes mounted and the bike finally starts to look like something.
Love the new pipes

NICE BUILD.

I have 2 bikes with steel tanks in them, one tank is 20 yo, another about 10. NO liners inside.
keep the filled up during winterizing, once in a while check up inside with a flashlight.
looks good.

I have a similar bike now with a 96" twevo engine. It probably has the same hp and torque as the 100" smooth. There's no need for any more hp on these light bikes...


nice one. Like it a lot.

Did not had the time to work on my build resp. rebuild for some weeks. But in the meantime tank, fender etc. are painted and I'll have some days off in a week to hopefully be able to finish this bike finally.

Keep you guys updated.

So time is right to finish this one. Parts ready, currently working on it. It's just about to assemble and doing some wiring. Hope everything gets along as expected and works and the bike runs...

So here some photos of what's going on currently.

Here some photos of the gas tank and fender. Fresh paint looks so hot. Love it.

So the gas tank, rear fender, fork brace and key box were painted. All just black, as the frame. Wanted to keep this one clean, LOVE the combo of gloss black and chrome.

Should be a classic chopper. I'm really impressed what painters can do with all that pinstriping and airbrush etc., but on my bikes, I love the simple looks.

So guess the combo here, of frame, springer, bars, fat tire, pretty sure this gas tank fits in perfect and gives this bike a badass look!

Here's a pic of the paintjob:

Here's a pic of the bottom of the gas tank. The paint covers all the work done to it to finally make this West Coast Choppers tank fit to a Big Bear Choppers bike.

And here's what I'm doing now, wiring of the mini combo blinkers (tail and brake light / blinkers).
