Default Re: Why doesn't someone market a cruiser gas tank line?

Thanks Warren. I have spent considerable time fine tuning my CAD programs. I give the CAD file to the laser shop and then they cut the stainless sheet exactly to my flat patterns. It really is amazing equipment. I receive the pieces back from the laser guys and then tack up the pieces to form the tank, then tig weld it together. After that I hand finish all the welds and grain the tank. Most people don't even paint them but just run them raw. The Schwinn tanks are made to look like the original tanks that came on those bikes. The Worksman tank is more of a boardtrack shape.
