I have a very old woman's hair dryer, the kind where they put a ventilated plastic hood over their hair and attached a hose from the fan/heating unit. I got as much gas out as I could, opened the cap, inserted hose, and ran for several hours over the course of a couple of days. No problem welding on the tank. Have also heard of using dry ice (drives out oxygen so no boom), filling tank with water, and running a hose from auto exhaust into the tank before and during welding. Be careful.
I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!
