Just ’cause you can, doesn’t mean you should. Bored and (almost) tanked (can you stand the pun and irony!). Here’s some pics of gas tank options to pass the time.

5 gal. Sportster (will be chopped, eventually):

Coupla gal. Hodaka Wombat Combat (?!):

H-D Leggero (whoa!):

Threw this Honda alloy number on too. This will be for the Kaw Cafe build once the Flathead’s completed

Standard Wassell
Here’s the last tank I tried. Ain’t gonna work

And the winner is….

Stay tuned for the next installment

    IMHO the Sposter and Honda “flow” the best with the frame, although the Leggero and Wombat (?! indeed) are cool too. Just my 2 ยข. Still looking mighty cool, and looking forward to more of the build.
