    After having my bike less than a week the fuel tank is pouring gas from one of the bolts that are used to mount it. Theres a pretty good sized hole in it and i'm going to attempt to seal it but I'd like to know if anyone can give me an idea of how to build my own tank out of pvc? I'd really appreciate it since the tanks with the kits are so junky. It doesnt have to be pvc really, just anything that would be a bit more reliable and on the cheap side.

    I'm sure you can, though I'm not sure if it would be .5 liters. I've got a similar setup on my frame and it seams like it would be a fairly small tank. You could do a mock-up with cardboard and figure out the volume and convert to liters :)
