More tank work. Once the halves were welded together a flange was turned by hand around the bottom edge to add strength to the entire shell.

Tank continued...

Next I got the fuel bung in and the majority of the underside/tunnel fitted. I wanted to get the seat pan, tank mounts, and a few other parts positioned and clearances set before welding in the tunnel. So it was dry fitted and set aside.

The tank she’ll with a quick polish to get a good look at the contours/transitions. Because the tanks will be painted this is as far as I’ll go with the metal finishing process. Just a coat of primer will fill any remaining hammer marks.

Thanks man! Sometimes I think I enjoy building bikes more than riding them.

Bro I am right there w you.  Sure I enjoy going for a ride.  However, I leap out of bed in the mornings if there’s work to be done. 
I am in awe of the work you and some others are doing.  Sometimes I’m surprised you all allow me to be here at all.
