I am still experimenting with the pictures, the lighting in the workshop sux..
this tank just looks like a different tank each time you look from another angle, but here is a preview of the "Onyx" , my girlfriend named the tank, she thinks it looks has the appearance of the stone...

Default Re: Making the Buck for the gas tank

a little pre-historic but here you see the outdoor human cnc.


It's better that way.

After all of the amazing hand work you've done so far, "fabbing" your tank buck with a 3-d printer would seem silly to me.

Excellent work. Excellent thread.

ps. Using plywood for your tank buck is a smart choice. Thick slabs of solid wood take a long time to dry and normalize. Laminated material starts and remains dimensionally stable, and it's cheaper too.

My $.02 worth.

Thread Chaser, thanks a lot . . .

Figuring out the perimeter of the side panel



I use .080" 3003 series h14 aluminum except for the tunell.




trial/fits on the buck, even though i have a solid buck, forming needs to be done on a post dolly.




after every bend, the panel needs to be test fitted on the buck






all panels together




flattening the welds and final forming



sanding the high spots



taking care of the low spots



the panel with the layout dye is the bottom, this tank has many dimensions, it is kind of challenging to exact fit the curved bottom panel to the main body.







after welding the bottom to the main body, i start drawing out the lines for the tunnel and cutting it.







after the cut, i start bending/shaping the sheet according to the opening.



and here is the tunnel




the fit





fusion tack welds



all panels welded together, i just need to sand the remaining hammer marks

Wow! That is a fantastic tank. I love how the front of the tank follows the downtube line. Well, really the whole thing just looks great. Respect!
Cheers, Dan.

I have to agree with Super. The lines on that tank just flow effortlessly with that bike. I wish I had just 1/3 the talent you had my friend. Beautiful bike. I'm excited to see the final product. Keep this coming.

I love this type of stuff! Thanks for taking the time to take pictures of the process, it is easy to get caught up in the project and forget. I think everyone here appreciates the the work going into this bike as well as the effort made to share the details.

My morning coffe tasted 100% better reading this thread...

awesome stuff!

my eyes got bigger and bigger the more i scrolled through the last 2 pages!

please move here and build a big f garage! then when you are my neighbor i could harass you with a million "how the F do you do this and that" questions!
and stand watching over your shoulder until you got so annoyed that you hated me!

oh, i would bring beer
