Default Re: Modified fuel tanks

When I did Jesse James schwinn tank I used the kit filler cap. I didn't notice that it warped but I think it would be very difficult to weld all the way around without burning a hundred holes in it. The material that the schwinn tank that is only supposed to "look" like a fuel tank was easier to weld on that the HT tank. I'm not a very good welder but even so I think brazing would be the way to go. I think Bikeguyjoes' I dea of using bondo to hide the seam is a good one. The weld on what's left of my HT tank is ~ 1/4 " wide. You could remove maybe half of the seam then fill the rest.
