    Thanks Venice , A lot of people ask about these tanks. A friend of mine copied my idea but made it out of steel and it came out real nice . I was thinking of doing one out of steel and see how it comes out I have a frame I need a tank for .

    This bike rides really well I spot welded the frame in a couple of spots and added a simple gusset . Hopefully this keeps the frame from breaking again . This will be my bike for the june meet .

    Frame broke again so I fixed the gray frame with a bigger gusset and more welds. Seems to be holding together now . I built a pipe for seems to work well and a new ignition. Bike likes to rev now and runs really well .
