There is a lot of time involved but copper tanks fuckin rock. I weld copper all day. I did one a while ago for a triumph I sold so I figure Ill do it again and if theres people out there that dont wanna pay shitloads of dough for one and dont have the means to make one, Ill do it for them. can anyone tell me how big a shit load is??
