    Hi I'm wondering if there is anywhere I can get a rear rack gas tank or a custom one made? I've searched google without any helpful results.

    Here is the tank I used from Dax.

    Depending on the geometry of the build and whether you want the tank above or below the rack, you may need to lift the rack so that the tank is above the carb. Here pics of my finished build. http://motorbicycling.com/f15/first-build-diamondback-outlook-10802.html

    You could also mount the stock tank on a rack. That's what I'm doing for a build for my father in law just to give more clearance to get his leg over the top bar.

    Ahh thank they have alot of misc parts for cheap too but yeah I was thinking the same with your second idea of just mounting the regular tank on a rack.

    Blarg...

    I've been meaning to get that rear rack tank for the longest time lol but it's still on the "to do" list :p

    Thanks for reminding me... I figure I'll take the peanut tank off my bike (I don't like it much) but have a T fitting & shutoff if I wanna run both for extended trips...

    Guess I'd hafta buy it first tho o_O :D
