    I've been watching all the gas tank mods for larger fuel capacity here and wanted to see what I could do. I found an old tank off a Triumph in a local cycle salvage yard that was 5-gallons. It seemed a long shot, but with some cutting here, welding there, and a coat of paint to match the bike... voila! I'm really happy with it. Whatja think?

    That looks really good. How much cutting and welding did you have to do?

    He shoots - he scores!



    I'm lik'in the looks of this one. And 5 gallons to boot. You gonna have to share some info at our next TVTW200OC meeting. I'd be very interested in upgrading from 3 to 5 gallons.
