Default Re: Copper tank INSIDE faux tank

Looks like copper water pipe and end caps. I don't remember the diameter, but it is incredibly expensive unless you could find it at a scrap dealer. Pvc would be the economical approach, but it is a good idea hiding the tank inside a stock fake one. I wonder how much or little gas it would hold. Not much I think, but one might not need much. Yes, no brakes. Simplifies the build and no cables to route. I can't imagine selling a motor bike without brakes.
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
