hello everyone,i have read stuff about ascot's in this forum so i figured id give it a try.i have a super clean 84 ascot vt500 but the gas tank is rotten.vt500 tanks are impossible to find,im wondering if anybody has fit other tanks on this bike.i kinda don't want to cut it up too much but i would chop the seat pan to make something fit.maybe ft500???sabre???nighthawk?? any reply is appreciated.thanks

I guess the VT500C tank fits with a bit of modification, less than any other tank from what I've heard...

Have you tried tank sealer?

yhea,it's been sealed by the previous owner but i think it's pretty rusted out .as of now it does'nt leak.im trying all the salvage yards this week to find an actual ascot vt500 tank,i might have to settle for a vt500 shadow tank,bummer.thanks
