Default Re: Another Fuel Tank variation

[QUOTE=Creative Engineering;59320]John,


That's exactly what I have planned for the Spoilers. There's no room up front for a tank on the spoilers without ruining the look of the bike. I did see one Spoiler that had an 883 Harley tank. It looked pretty good, but I still think a small cylinder is the way to go.

Last summer I bought a bunch of odds and ends material from a shop that was closing. As luck would have it, there was a bunch of different size Aluminum tubing in the mix.

Yes, I got a bunch of scrap aluminum, and aluminum tubing from the last place I worked when it closed. It would probably be less work to just Tig. the end caps, instead of cutting the o-ring grooves and set screwing the caps, but I would have to run them over to a friend of mine, so I just do the extra work. I have plenty of time.
