    Hello everyone I'm new here and to the motorized bicycle thing....I am wanting to start a build, I have been compiling a list of things I need and things I want to do... I want to build a 1913 Harley Davidson single replica... My main issue is finding a replica tank .. there are several tank styles out there but I haven't found any that replicate a Harley... Is this something I'm going to have to build or can someone point me in the right direction... Thanks in advance...

    Hey B, welcome!
    I've heard that this place http://www.ghettobike.com/ will build gas tanks.
    They aren't cheap, the custom build guys on here often build their own but they know how to tig and have welding gear. I imagine a body could also braze up a tank to save money on welding equipment.
    You can also use a small, plastic tank hidden inside a dummy tank that looks just like an old Harley, but doesn't require welding.
    Good luck to you.

    Slogger, that's what I was thinking I would hear.. building one isn't to much of a problem .. was kind of hoping someone already had something built it would make things easier on me...lol

    Get the frame finished, then fit a tank.
