    putting pics in is less of a challenge than i thought-if they are sized right.always seem to do something wrong.

    this is a build in progress,bike still needs work,but i wanted to start with the tank.
    next is fuel valve at the seat post,and a vent up front.

    sorry its not a rear mount,i just had to share.

    the bung is from a zodiac inflatable boat,it was rotten,probably 30 years old,so i scrapped the boat,saved the air fittings.brass,easy to solder to the steel pipe.

    Very different and very well done! It sets into the bike quite well.

    I have a macargi general with 2 50. Calliber ammunition boxes mounted to the rear as "saddle bags". I will be attaching a Jerry can for a gas tank once I rebuild the rear.

    If it's a 5 gallon can, you should be able to almost ride across TX on one fill up. ;-)
