Yep, you need to weld in some NPT threaded bungs where you want your fittings. I got mine from mcmaster carr, but bungking.com has them as well.

Thanks bro, I ordered the bungs today. I was actually ready to red-kote the tank, but now I really want to add the fuel tube after seeing your tank, so a little longer wait before it gets mounted......

After remembering I did this and reading through it again, noticed I never did insert a photo or two of the finished product:

I use the top of a gas bottle as well for certain curves I need. Another really good surface for working metal on is the bottom of a oxygen or acetylene or argon bottle. If you can fine one damaged then cut off the bottom and mount it on a stand. They have a concave base that works great for metal work. You can go to welding stores that sell gas and ask if they have any old unusable tanks. Most of the time they will give them to you. Oh yeah, keep the part you cut off because it works great for bending metal around.

I've been gone for a while but I'm back to finishing my bike. I am modifying the Chinese Made WCC Villain tank and my question is about venting. I am cutting a deep tunnel in the front of the tank for the bars to clear and I need to remove the air vent which runs from the top of the tank to the lowest point in the rear. Do I need to replace the air vent tube? The gas cap I'm using is the six gun cap and is not vented.

Thanks for the advice!

(before everyone jumps on me, I haven't cleaned up the tunnel yet so it looks rough. A flap disk will clean it up nicely and I'll cut the curves after I've measured properly)
