Metal Works I think still does it, Ron (Vision) is in the states? Last I remember, he might build one or two, I have been following Fabulous Fabricators and they build some slick tanks as well.

What are you looking for specifically?

I am building a chopper war eagle frame 131 merch engine with 330 rear and right side drive. Curved backbone and need a large tank to fit the build. I can't find anything off the shelf to fit. I would like something to come all the way back and around the seat. And curved underside. I wish this site had traffic like back in the day. Any links would be appreciated.
Thanks

(Search the name they do some crazy builds)

For what it sounds like you want, someone local would probably be your best bet unless you send out REALLY good specs/dimensions or the frame, and seat.

You can do a only think I could think of is Villain and do fiberglass shell to curve it or 6 Gallon fat bob and do the same treatment, but thats alot of fiberglass.

Three Two Choppers might be able to JC and his Brother are some damn great people.

did a search for "Custom Motorcycle Gas Tank" and found this guy, maybe close to what you want?

Sheet Metal Fabrication, Gas Tanks, Fenders, Oil Tanks, Handlebars, Sheet Metal Parts, Elite Metal Designs LLC

Hope this helps man
