Any info on sealing a home-made tank? Just for corrosion resistance and crap like that.

I've resized the pattern to full size, You can download the .PDF from the tech-stuff page of my site at TheTrikenest.

Hey Tink thanks for keeping that. That particular pattern is for the older style the pre 1994 95 or so when the tanks were more rounded in the front and had a hard seam along the bottom.

To make the post 95 style tank I think I need to make a new pattern because I see a lot of places where the modern more aggressive style Sportster tank actually works a lot better then the earlier style.

This is the older style:
