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.
Hello, good friend if you want my opinion then there simply will! I like this look, I do not like to see the tanks in front of the frame when it comes to a motor bike, I like to see them in the back, this tank is very Chinese, but if a friend get a scrap tank gasoline engine to take water or a water reservoir of the circuit referigeração a car is also very good, and safer than the Chinese tank, stay well
