an older dood sent me these photos of this tank and we are both trying to figure out who made it. more out of curiosity i guess.
it has not beem modified in any way.
the photos are a little on the cruddy side and make the tank look a little wider than it actually is.
the tank is about 8 - 8 1/2 inches at the widest point.
looks alot like a wassell but different type of cap.
it has dual petcock holes all the way to the back of the tank as well. one on each side.

anyone have any ideas?

...hmm...midday soap opra's must be over or something.

well,who cares if it's for sale.
it's not fitting my backbone the way i wanted it too with the proportions of my bike.
i started this thread to figure out the MAKE of the tank BEFORE,i even had it in my possesion. so i really had no idea if it was going to work or not on my build until late last night when it arrived.

if i can't use something,it goes up for sale or trade,so i can get what i actually need.
and im sure most do the same as well.

..hate on.
