i am helping my buddy do a front and rear supension conversion on his kz(katana front-end,wheels,brakes,swingarm etc.).according to him 'he has always wanted a flush mount gas cap".a buddy of ours drives roll off dumpster trucks and finds all kinda crazy stuff.well he found an old rz 350 tank,so my buddy has his way with it and cuts out the gas cap and brings it out to my house so he can cut the top out of his kz tank and i can weld it together.
we were very pleased with how well it turned out.my camera was on the charger when we started so i don't have the before pics,but here are the after's.

Looks good, but do you have a key for it?

that is one of the things to make sure if you are going to rob one out of a salvage tank is to get the key.he has a key that works,but he did say something about the tumblers being messed up.
thanks for the kind words,
