Think about just a polish and clearcoat on the plain steel.
I'm finishing up my paint now. The paint looks great, but i'm more of a fan of raw metal for sure. Maybe next time. Thanks guys for the comments.

I'll post of a pic of the finished product once i get the brass strip engraved.

That is damn cool man. I been meaning to do a copper accented tank but your finished product is better than anything I have been able to dream up so far. Still, everytime I see something this good it makes me want to get back into the shop and bloody my knuckels until 3AM.

Thanks for the great tutorial and I am glad you were not seriously hurt.
You had the guard on the grinder that was VERY smart. Did you have gloves on?
We can all get hurt but the precautions can make a big difference.

Anyway the outcome looks good and very craeative solutions.
I think the round bar really made this tank unusual and beautiful.
Way to go.Thanks for all the work that you did to make the drawings and photos while you were working.

Be careful about copper and steel together.
That is more than a 30 pt. electrical potential difference and it could cause the steel to corrode .

Yea but wouldn't it be the copper that would be the one to corrode? Ideally there is some way to isolate them...(maybe a thin layer of epoxy)..but admittedly I dont have it figured out yet or I would be out doing it right now.

Yeah, I had gloves on, but just mechanics type gloves. The disc hit the glove but went right through because they were not leather.

Cool

Markee,

This is an awesome thread! Cant wait to see the tank mounted and on the finished ride.

Can you estimate the hours that you have in the tank build?

Older Thread Still Great Every Time I Read

I couldn't help but try to revive this one. I never do this but it has been a great thread and I've sifted through it dozens of times. Markee did a kick ass job---Drew

Thanks everyone, glad you enjoyed it.

Painted and mounted on the bike photos should be up in a couple weeks. Finishing the tank completely is the last thing keeping the scoot from going down the road (well, and DMV).
