    I was thinking of making up some custom cannonball tanks like the one I made for my speed demon race bike.

    It's a 6" sphere and holds 1/2 gallon.

    I can make a universal seatpost mount, hanging frame mount, or, if you provide exact dimensions, custom mounts.

    The major impact on cost is the filler bung and cap. Those ain't cheap.

    I'm thinking price would be $150, with free shipping in the USA.

    Gimme some feedback, let me know what you guys think.

    My original tank pictured. Mounts, filler, and petcock will differ in production models.

    Here's what it looks like on my racer. Built the custom gusset to make it sit in the frame.

    Picture is for reference only. I'm thinking "behind-the-seat" mounts for simplicity.

    If you want it custom, in frame, whatever, you'd have to send me your bike. And it'll cost ya...

    Nice tanks baird. Different enough to look cool on a lot of bikes. I really like the location on your race bike. It just looks like it belongs there.
