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?

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.

Now that I figured out that 5-gallon mod, I'm thinking 50 gallons might really extend the range of the TW. Lessee, 50-gallons X 70 mpg = 3,500 miles!! Coast-to-coast on one tank of fuel! Of course there are a few size and weight issues to work around...

After this thread I think we should demote you to the CT 90 Board. They are always looking ways to haul more gas.







If you really wanted to go all out for a gag you should have made a fresh battery thread. Qwerty's head would have popped off.

Oh sure... now that you see it was a gag I'm not so brillant after all huh?
Funny thing is... back in high school I probably wore plaid shirts, slacks, and Converse tennis shoes like in your pic. Yikes!

Even though it looks like I was going along with this gag, truth is I need help removing the hook from my lip!



Truelight, you had me on this one! You took your BSU sticker off your tank, that's what had me taking the bait.

Haha - Best 1'st joke I saw this year. The CT90 comeback was hilarious too! Of course, you we just taking advantage of a bunch of gullible people that already have an uncontrollable urge to mod anything that can be ridden. Good one.
