Yeah not sure about the voltage. Im in awe of how clean the inside of the tank is. Incredible, thought mine was rust free till i saw this one haha. What are you working on this rainy weekend?

The good news the comp gauge adapters came in while I was at the Spring Thaw.

Not ideal/Not terrible, 148psi will get us by for a while.  Atleast I know rings and valve clearences are decent.  Any lower and I would check valve adjustment.



Looking deeper into the tank I am just amazed.



Working to remove old petcock, of course stripped the head on the screw.  Time for JIS screwdrivers. 
I drilled the head and popped it off.  Soaked in penetrant and using channel locks spun it out.




thanks goodness tank threads are still in good shape.



Buyer beware,  Opened new ebay petcock and found it didnt contain the bowl screen.  GRRRR  >:(
The original bowl screen dont fit the new one.  DOUBLE  GRRRR >:(  >:(



While all this was going on I noticed some strange bumps under tank and started digging into that.

TRIPLE GRRRRR   >:(  >:(  >:(



After watching some youtube vids about welding and brazing repairs...

Gonna run the tank into Marks radiator shop to see if he can give her an acid bath, (thanks matt ;) ) OR DIY w evapo-rust, get a bondo fiberglass kit and Eastwood creme kit.  Do my level best to save her.

I don't think they are going to be the same.

I'm going to pickup a 72 cb175 frame and I been checking to see what the differences are.

Looks like most all won't fit. I was mostly interested in the seat on that frame, looks to be in perfect shape. Don't look like it will fit a CB100 either, but what the heck. Buying it anyways.

148 cold will go up once you run her a bit.  Should be in the 175 -180 warm after fresh oil and hot engine. Bummer about the tank as it is really clean inside otherwise.

The whole reason I am working so hard to save this tank.  Right now the few CL100 tanks on ebay are listed twixed $150 - $250 and probably in no better condition than this one.   :o  >:(

Holy cow.  I took the tank into Marks radiator shop.  As soon as I pulled in I remembered going there w my old man when I was a kid.  And NOTHING has changed.
Not even the help, the old boy I was talking w has been working in there 36+ years.  As friendly as he could be.  I showed him the tank and asked, "if he could boil it clean for fiberglass and creme", turns out hes confident they can fix it "properly".

He promised me it "WOULDNT BE PRETTY"  LOL

I chuckled and said "You should my other bike!   ;D"

I asked for a time and cost estimate.  Maybe tomorrow and maybe $45 bucks.  Unless they find more thin spots.

"As long as its right, do it."  He just smiled.

That's exactly what my tank looks like after a few vinegar treatments...............guess I need to check out the radiator shop way.........or trade the cb350 tank I got to replace it.
