Well.... the green bike bad luck struck early. The tank was sitting on a bench while the clear was drying and somehow it fell off, knocking a big chip/dent into ass the end and fucking up a tank mount. this is the second time it mysteriously fell off of a bench.... I think it's cursed.
I ordered another tank, starting over....

A day of cutting and grinding and the new tank is starting to look decent.
-Mounts removed, tunnel prepped for cap.-

Back to doing what I love... making parts for my bikes from junk. The 'Feeder needed a low profile gas cap. I couldn't find one sufficiently cobby (or cheap) so, while the tank is getting welded, I made one.


Cheezy Chinese made billet cap ($5 swap meet find)

After a soak in oven cleaner to de-anodize:



Sand, shape, polish.
