|VampV||And um yeah..... i hit a bit of a snag.... the tank... in its ENTIRETY... has bondo ALL over it. Apparently the shape wasnt 'perfect' to the PO or builder and therefore they 'squared' it by applying bondo........ geeeeez. I sanded and grinded for over an hour on that damn thing. But i got it down n ready to paint hopefully this afternoon.|

Aint quite decided.

|LibertyPilot||Nice man. Are you keeping the sissy bar? Was that on purpose? Also, what are you thinking for paint color(s)?|

LOL.. yeah well my trips usually are just round town.. no long runs for me anymore... the ol'body just cant handle more than 50 miles before having to rest.
And yeah, i remember when gas was cheap(er). I'm thinking this will hold around 2.2 gallon...... maybe less.. not sure.. i'll know when i go to fill it up first time. IF its less than that... 'meh'... will look cool as sheeet either way.

|wmsonta||The one I had in 1972 did not hold much gas, of course I had it on a Harley and gas was cheap.|

Yeah... soon as i get the funds for the tank liner.... i'll be set. I still have some welding/ tapping to do..etc... but that'll be like a couple hours work.
Paint scheme is still being decided. i was HOPING to be done by maybe late this weekend. However, just depends on weather.
