Trackmaster Fiberglass Fuel Tank
Caswell sealer (as per Mike Stodolka) and it's holding up so far. I drain the tank after 24 hours anyway (not taking any chances). I'm testing it for leaks before I get it painted for good. The Caswell is supposedly "fuel proof" to all the modern gasoline additives. The tank is rubber and foam mounted, and I made a special support for the bottom to keep it from rockin' side-to-side. Mounts with a single stud in the middle, as factory, and secured with more rubber and a nylon insert lock nut. I've got some neato retro H-D race decals for the sides too. The Champion plug decal is NOS from the 60s. This fresh engine starts kinda hard, but when she's running . . . sounds tough. The Delorto PHM is responsive. I feel fortunate to get to build some of these bikes, and have fun with them, but it ain't always easy, and sometimes I get so frustrated I about quit. Then the sun comes up and I get going - and everything is cool again.
