I've seen on here where people build tanks out of a can of pork n' beans. Mines not that inventive, but it sure cleans up the look of the bike in my personal opinion. I sure would like to know where to get cheap filler tubes and caps to make something like that. All I can find are really expensive ones ($80+).

Have a nice day.
I WONDER HOW IT WOULD LOOK IF You fabricated or bought a green ammo box & placed it around the tank to make it look more military if you wanted, How do you think that might look? P.S. Ive always liked the Military bikes & I absolutely love the old original double bar frames/ bikes . Just wish I could find one out in some old barn some place and not have to pay out the backside for one >
