gas tanks


Post by george48pan » Wed Feb 24, 2010 3:58 pm

I am still looking for 5 gal gas tanks. I know that a 65 gas tank still has the through the tank shutoff.
The v-twin catalog has replacement gas tanks. They also show rubber mount with bottom shutoffs.

My question is: Does any one have any comments or experience with aftermarket tanks from drag specialties or v-twin?

This is my only bike and I want to put miles on it

Only ones I had experience with were the ones mounted on my brother-in-law's 50 chopped pan. They weren't even close to looking like OEM, but he didn't need that look anyway.
