For some reason, my response was removed from the thread in which I originally bought my tank in the swap section.


In any regards, this tank is fucking gorgeous beyond belief. As soon as I get my '49 closer, I'll post some pics on the main board...hopefully those won't get deleted as well.

G, Thanks for the kind words and the help with the Big Twin tank configuration. We are excited to see the tank on the bike you are the first with this style on a big twin. I believe they guys are tring to clean up the board on placement of stuff. The Jock Shop area was new since the whole tank thing started and they felt with the development from a one off tank to providing them as a product was a better fit over here then in the classified section.

4 qt. Spun Aluminum Oil Tank $260 shipped to the lower 48

Durable .125" thick x 5.125" diameter x 11.5" long spun aluminum oil tank with .125" thick stainless mount brackets and screw on oil cap for $255 plus shipping.

This is a nice alternative to a Moon tank. Same oil capacity, a thicker more dent resistant tank, more durable stainless brackets for $50 less.

Started a thread the other day about 1" solid alumiunum handlebars. I'd like to bend some for my project. I have a bender that can bend these no problem, but I would have to tool it up. Wondering if there would be any interest out there if I were to offer 1" solid aluminum bars. If there is enough interest I would pop for the tools. Any thoughts?

I may have to add a little for shipping if a guy ordered apes or something odd shaped.

Dan does some super nice work and is a stand up guy to boot, he helped support our first shop party this summer, the Lowbrow Customs Backyard Beer Brawl with an oil tank and some brass moon tank mounts that he whipped together on short notice and donated for the raffle!

Hey Dan, nice that you got your tank on that cover shot, looking good

Cheers
Tyler

Really great work on the oil tanks. Beautiful! I will definiitely be talking to you down the road. Question: Howcome just 16" on the fenders? Again, nice product w/good price, but I'm lookin' at an 18"x4:00 rear
