    Maybe a good rinse through with fresh gas, but that’s it.

    Whom did you get it from?

    Can you post a pic of it?

    Did vendor pressure test it and if so, did he provide the documentation?

    I got it from TabII.
    As far as I know he did not pressure test it but I could be wrong.

    I have always wanted an alloy tank. Literally for over 25 years and now I have one, Im very excited to say the least!

    Here is a mock up of it today. My friend and I ripped my wiring harness out of my bike to do a custom one in order to free up the handle bar controls and simplify things.

    I have a passion for aluminium tanks. I've spent stupid money on them, too. Hells-bells- I had Even Wilcox make one for my stinky little CB400F. Worth more than the whole bike for cryin out loud.

    I don't think they need to be pressure tested, nor lined. But jeezloweeze- they sure dent easy.

    My screen is kind of dark- what bike is that?
    LOOK OUT IT\'S COMING THIS WAY!
