Default Re: Gas tanks!!

Check your local listings for a motorcycle salvage yard near you. If they're kind they'll let you poke through what they have. There are plenty of small motorcycle tanks that lend themselves well to motorized bikes.
Look for a Yamaha MX 80 tank. They look good and mount easily with a little fabrication. Also the Suzuki Junior had a sweet little tank.

Wink Re: Gas tanks!!

I kinda like the shape of this tank and it's a snug fit

It's easy enough to make yourself if ya know how to weld aluminum.
