Its probably Bagger having second thoughts about not mounting the xt350 tank that I sold him. He passed it on to another forum member with regrets (and even informed me of the transfer, so its like old family week sometimes), but alas my first xt350 tank has not resurfaced to me knowledge. Shipping a tank is not big deal, air it out, plop it in a box and pay mr. fedex about $25 for within the US. I've shipped 3 tanks (1 xt350, and 2 stock tw tanks). Tom

Peruano:

I de-rusted the inside and cleaned up the outside making it ready for some real paint.

A work in progress. My biggest hold up is bringing myself to hacksaw that little nub that holds the stock tank on off.

I still have the rubber pads if you want to see them. Tony

I'm confused, did old white truck get the tank or is it still available by chance? :confused:

seller told me it was sold to someone in washington, though no one here has said they bought it.

Not to worry friends. The tank stayed in the TW family. The seller was a honest dude who did some shipping for shipping to save me shipping cost. Nice to know there are honest folks still. I am still nursing the broken leg so this will be a good project while I cannot ride yet.

Elime, Oh shucks, don't be afraid of cutting off that nub to move the tank attachment back a few centimeters.
1. It's threaded on the inside so it can be put back if you ever want to (without welding).
2. It's a simple hacksaw type of job. Just place a washer at the bottom to hold your saw or sawzall up a tad.
I was initially thinking I needed a substantial bracket back there, it turns out almost any piece of metal attached to where you cut the nub and to the tank attachment point will work to to hold the tank in place.
I recognize some of those dents so indeed you have the original xt350 tank that got me on my way. Go for it. Tom
