    not nearly as nice as most of the tanks on here but I just made this out of an old gallon can of what was some industrial slag from the 60s. Soldered in a petcock and a vent cap. It works perfect and I think it sort of compliments the bike its on. [​IMG]

    All you have to do now Tom is have Peter Fonda or Dennis Hopper autograph it.....you could become famous! Or just have a cool tank with some note worthy signatures on it :D

    I'll bet KC Vale is green with envy over this tank :D Tank you very much ;)

    Actually Scott, I tried to get Fonda to do it. I had his contact info and sent a picture of the bike and requested a response. They apparently weren't impressed. Never heard back from them.
    And I'm too late for Mr.Hopper. He left us a while back.

    Wish that photo was bigger, DRBS. It looks cool, what I can see of it. Are those lightening bolts? Looks like a bobber tank similar to mine that I did some gold ghost flames on

    Nice tank DRBS, not too sure the electricity and gasoline are very safe outside of the combustion chamber though.....some sort of a ground rod may be in order there :D
