When I went to inspect it I checked it pretty thoroughly. I'm always pretty wary of nicely repainted old tools. I have no use for sawdust and spit glue show pony in my garage.

I cut a 1" x 20tpi screw on it before giving deposit and it did a nicer job than my lathe. Thread form and tracking were spot on.

Met an interesting character and got a story too. This one's out of a Navy ship and still has the original issue asset tag and delivery markings (went direct from SB to Navy).

I think it'll be a great tool.

I wasn't running down its functionality, just praising its geriatric elegance.

So i spend alot of time in the garage smoking cigs. Probably not the best thing considering the amount of flammables. But it does give me time to think. Ideas come and go. Some good, most not.


So while this bike languishes in a state of perpetual standstill, I have been rolling the gas tank issue around in my head. The Suckerpunch paint is definitely on the way out. 5 gallon tanks are too big. Sporty tanks look too small w wideglide and 7" headlight. So I decide to keep the 3.5 gallon "Punchy" tanks. Liner is good inside, so why not ?



Well...this may be why. The fit is fucking dog dick. Left tank is visibly taller at front and very back. Right tank has 1/4" (thats 7mm for you Brit guys) hump in center. All of this is at the backbone/centerline. I could "work" the backbone mounts a bit but only makes matters worse in the center. On top of all that going on, the notched portion for backbone bolts dont line up for shit either.







Add to that the 'V' at the seat is pronounced.


Ok, so most likely aftermarket tanks. No hallmarks on mounts. I think I read on another forum years ago that factory tanks where not so pretty. True or not ? Either way, the simple solution is 2" aluminum strip along tank split. Add some small tab/bung. no big deal. Had the tanks not been lined, I would be tempted to add some thin round stock along split to even up the notches. That could take care of the center hump on right tank.




Paint ideas. Flames are forever cool. Been there. Multiple lines and colors are neat also. Been there. So after 2 Redbulls I get out the masking tape and do some scallops. I'm no artist, so bear with on this one. Tape and taggers marker.









Feedback on scallops would be appreciated.

I like what you did with the scallops and dig the 3.5's. It may not bug others but I hear what your saying about the tanks though, mine are zel and doing the same and it kinda bugs me too cause i'm not gonna use a cover. Maybe keep an eye out for some other tanks. last week I found some with hallmarks like you said that look better to use

Jireh has 3.5 bobs in stock for $103 part 20-59. No 5g's in stock. I can't speak to the quality of these, as these are made in Taiwan. I have purchased tanks from them in the past but the ones I purchased 10 years ago were made in Mexico. Those were excellent, and made of heavier steel than factory.

Maybe someone has used the one's they are selling now and would speak to the present quality.

The scallops need more size forward, I think. Scallops can be a great look.

I had looked at "Ultima" tanks. After the cheapo fender fiasco I have been leery of bargain parts. I am in process of returning tanks to auction site seller. Seems some cant tell the difference between 3.5 and 5. Guess who pays for return shipping?




More size forward on scallops ? Do you mean "push" the whole thing forward towards neck or add thickness? Like go from 2 1/4" to 2 3/4", that sort of thing ? Opinions on the rear fender scallop, please. Thats the one that seems to mess with my head

Yep got a TECO FM50. Around $130. That's what I've been running my old lathe and Bridgeport on for a decade. Known quantity ;-0

I converted the old barrel switch on the Bridgeport to a FWD, STOP, REV switch but it was a pain in the butt. Added a variable speed pot too.

Bought an all in one control station this time rather than try to convert the old switch again.

Have a sub-panel issue I have to address before getting this one under power. Easy enough but I'v got to get official paper for it since I now live in my retirement plan.

Add thickness. Many scallop and flames come out of the color paint covering the front of what is being painted.

I didn't take it that way.

If you find yourself down in SJ, come see it for yourself.

That'd be nice, thanks, I will sometime.

Just learned to my sorrow that the All British show, long held in SJ, is no more. Shid.

Just a brief word on tanks, if you care.

I think the aftermarket ones are made very, very nicely...but the shape and size are wrong. They don't have the elegant taper to the rear of the original three-anna-halfs.

The aftermarket ones hold something like four and change, too, which is why I think there is confusion on the size of them.

As far as the fit, they do need tweaked. My oldtimer buddy Dick (ibop7 on here) and I have a constant argument about the best way to fit them: he is a tab bender. I space them. I've had to egg some of the mount holes before to get stuff to sit just so on the bike.

And about the rear fender: looks are of course very subjective, but I might make the rear scallops fall down farther onto the side skirts a bit; I think that would help 'em look "right."

True. Most have the front of tank completely the same color as flame/scallops. Some scallops are stand-alone contrasting color as well as usually angular. Sporty tanks are perfect for angular. Bob tanks look odd that way.

I found the more expensive V-Twin 3.5gal. replica tanks that are year/emblem specific are a lot nicer than anybody else' offerings.
They also have the inexpensive one where the left doesn't fit the right and one end is tapered and the other blunt......


Tanks left to right are '54, '55 and 1941

VonWegener is the Von Winner ! Last pic(bottom row) looks exactly like what I have going on. Right tank, at seat, takes a dive into the backbone. Forming a nasty angle. I took a look at Teds site and model/badge specific is great if you want fuel rods,badges and tank shift. Perhaps VT-38-0574 or
VT-38-0571 would be appropriate.
