Anything is possible George, you could take 2 cans and sling them over the top tube like saddle bags and then use a Y fitting to drain them both into one line. If you wanted to set them up side by side on a rear rack there are a few ideas coming to mind that would make it feasible. Silver bearing solder would likely do what you need, sliver brazing is stronger but maybe a little trickier to work with on the thin metal cans if you don't have the right equipment. I have a Smith Little torch that works well for soldering, brazing and welding thin'ish metals. My butane powered pencil torch was perfect for the soldering work I needed to do on this tin can tank project though....they are dirt cheap on eBay these days.
