Raw aluminum tanks give me a stiffy, but the $499.95 price causes instant flaccidity.

If you don't mind waiting 20 weeks, paying for shipping from Scotland, and can get over the fact that one U.S. dollar will buy you .58 of a British pound, then go check out the tanks at:

Someday when I have money to burn, I'll have them make me a pair of replica WR tanks in aluminum for my 45.

I like that tank a lot. I seem to recall ones like it on Brit or European dirtbikes, no? I'm surprised by how well it works on the knuckle. I tried really, really hard to make a Yamaha XT500 aluminum tank work on an XS650. Didn't work at all and looked kinda retarded. Now who's got a pair of aluminum fatbobs? Can I get a steel pair coated in some aluminum coating and then polished? Kinda like aluminized exhaust? Will that work?[



and while not tecnically "mounted" ..

well we can still have our special dreams, wot ??



I'll find a slim sturdy young Brit to mount her yet tho ..
