    Building an Aluminum(alloy) CR750 Gas Tank..OCR

    Started the new alloy CR750 tank tonight. Made some progress.....took some pics and vid of the build.
    Hopefully i'll be able to film a "How To" on building this tank, to let you guys see how these tanks are built.
    Heres a couple pics from tonight....and will have some video of the build, posted here in a few.



    Some of these videos are pretty long....grab a cold one.....sit back and enjoy.






    ...new video Sunday 2/17/08



    More soon,
    Greg

    Thanks man! You help motivate me to get off my ass and get to work on my own projects. A lot of work goes into your tanks and it's clear to see what good value they are. I'm saving up my pennies hoping that one day an OCR tank will adorn my CB350.

    Okay, I can see it...get big Ed to grow a walrus mustache and you two start staging phony arguments...then hire some tattoo'ed floozies to hang around the shop and pretend like they're your "apprentices"...send all your shit to OTHER shops to get done and make a big deal out of you getting filmed bolting it all together, strike a couple manly poses by the english wheel and wait for the cult of personality to build around you. Next, dream up some signature merchandise, you know, "soft goods" they call it in the biz: bandannas, ugly t-shirts, chaps (and line up a contract to get it made on the cheap in some Chinese sweatshop. Since you're cafe, I guess checkers or some shit should be prominent--whatever sells the image) and sit back and let the money roll in.

    Seriously, that's cool that you're posting these vids.



    Honda go sideways!

    thanks greg! So if I understand correctly, you just grab whatever kind of aluminum sheet that's available? What gauge do you try to use? The reason I ask is because I'm in the process of making an alloy cafe seat.

    --Thanks, chris

    I wanted to bring this thread up again, since it's one of the most amazing projects I've seen on this forum, and we never got an update on it. Greg, did you finish it yet?

    Actually.....have done a little since I posted these videos, but havent had time to do any filming or posting. Things have been a little busy around here and have to take care of paying customers first....then can get around to my projects.

    Hopefully.....will have this tank finished up soon...and some more pics and videos.

    I'll keep you guys posted,
