Ed note: The answer the cliffhanger from the last post, Mike chose the Wassell tank. The next installment of this series will be about the gas tank mounting process. Now onto our regularly scheduled program…

Need to locate the coil. It’ll fit nicely under the tank and shouldn’t interfere with the throttle line or gas line - I said shouldn’t.

A piece of flat stock and some nuts and bolts does the trick:

    I have that same tank!! Stamped with a Tokyo, Japan. Do you have a gas cap for it? Was wondering where you may have gotten it…I’m looking for one. Also did you do any prep to the tank before you welded it? I’m afraid it’ll blow up if i start welding mine.

    Hey Sean:

    Yep, it’s a DAISHO tank. I found a gas cap but it’s pretty beat and I’m still looking for a good one.

    Let me know if you are willing to sell the tank. Send me an e-mail, thanks.
