I would like to see some custom tanks. I like the creativity level of alot builders and would like to see either hand made, or modified tanks.

Here is my Sporty tank... narrowed 2", relocated filler (Bung King), shallow tunnel, flat spot removed, and new bottom with hidden mounts.

The start.....

The end result minus the petcock.....

Here's my tank but not my work. My buddy wanted to make the tank for my bike and I'm pretty happy with the way it's turning out.

sorry for the fuzzed pic.
i mocked this one up in cardboard,then had this old sheetmetal guy break it out.then i sewed it up and welded a piece of softail baffle to my bung king filler to get it to stand up.
turned up my own bungs and built my own mounts.

This tank started as a 82 or so cb750...split it down the middle and built a new bottom plus some other massaging.

This was a stock honda 250 tank that I shortened and narrowed at the rear and generally reshaped. The brass was melted in there by my buddy who thought he was helping when I wasn't around...hell of a mess to try to weld up leaks after that!
