The new XL350 tank got delivered today. It’s got a few dings, but man the patina is glorious. I’ll have to think really hard about painting this tank. 



I also began work on a Cush drive conversion experiment. It’s an RM250 wheel, so no Cush. I could swap for DR350s, but people want silly money for them.  I still have a few details to work out, including casting the urethane innards...

that tank is the beez kneez. Don't know how far you'll get between fill ups, but my guess is you'll be aching for a break at that point anyways

No more than if it had a Frisco, Peanut, Wassel, Axed, Coffin, Prism, Sportster, or Alien tank.  It's exactly the same volume.

Yeah.  My 3.5 gal tank on my chop only get me so far and I'm usually ready to stop by then anyways.   

I dig that tank you got.  I vote keep the patina.
