    It's scary decades old, brittle fibreglass. It's just plain dangerous to use on the road. The idea of putting hot oil near gas in an old glas tank is stupid in the extreme. A hot oil tank in your crotch? Mmm, tasty!

    It's worth about fifty bucks, and should be hung on the wall to look at, never to use and put lives at risk. I's not going to be your life in peril, so I guess you are O.K. with that?

    You won't need to paint flames on this crusty old tank. They will be real flames.

    Old 1970's fiberglass is total crap now.... fuel will turn that into mush

    Not to mention having your crotch heated to 200 degrees does not sound very interesting
