Eventually I was able to construct a simple cut and weld bracket that actually worked and the front brackets just went on easy. So now the tank is mounted and I am fed up with doing anything more on if for the day.

VicodinWizard - One more thing I do for rust is to keep a 7 gallon bucket half full of used motor oil. Any parts that I know will not be needed for a long time go into the bucket. With the tank mounted I decided that I wanted to play around with the pieces for cantilever seat setup had been working on like 2years ago. Among the pieces there were also 2 dead little lizards in there that were perfectly well preserved but I already tossed them over the back fence before momma broke out the camera....such a shame they were really cute too.

This ain't rocket science folks.
Fred Flintstone called, he wants his hand tools back.

Sorry, couldn't resist. I tried.

Your closer then you think Rhode...
2 years ago I was pulling a couch tour in California and wanted to play with some new designs but all he had was wood working tools and a pair of snips and a claw hammer. But he had his front yard all done up with this stuff called "River Rock" it was just a shitload of smooth roundish rocks sized anywhere from a tennis ball to a softball. After I worked out that they could be used as dollies it was like I had the greatest collection of dollies for any radius imaginable. So yea, I have made tanks using rocks so those tools are a step up

Great thread, Vision.

Would love to see more,......but you better watch out.


If you give all your secrets out, you won't sell as many tanks.

The only secret I want to get out there is that if you want to do this stuff it is not that hard. I think there are a lot f guys who are under the impression from TV that this is something difficult or that it takes and real talent. But honestly, it is all just a craft that can be picked up by anyone who who wants to learn it and can be practiced without a factory full of uber expensive machinery.

update

Just got the tank back from the kid across the way who shot it with some cheapo paints for $50. This is not the final paint theme I will keep for the bike but it does give me the general idea how it will look when all painted black.

Question about your tank, how much fuel does it hold?

As Vincent Vega's Heroin dealer Lance said when asked what would happen after she gets the Adrenalin shot

"Yea I am kinda curious about that myself"

Haven't actually done a volume check yet but I am thinking it is gonna be pretty close to stock - whatever I got from the frisco tunnel i\I gave up for dished side so that puts me somewhere near even.

I think I may scrap this one and do a higher capacity tank (I can't go much longer but i think I can go a fair bit wider and a little taller as well to get up near 4 gallons) -since I do have a half baked plan to try to sell these and I know there is a need for a higher capacity Sporty tank.

I think its great but for where your at a higher cap to use more of the tank to fill it up and a raised cap might work a bit better. Really like it though

That is the process, which is why you really want to take your time getting the shape nice and smooth before you put the bottom on.
