Buy it cheap - Just add sweat

This oem, chrome(and heavily dented) rigid frame tank was modified to fit in a swingarm frame.  I'll use it, as H-D intended,(in my early '54 wishbone frame).  I cut off the cobbled mount, blasted off the chrome - and had lots of help from skilled craftsman . . . welding and fabricating the correct mounts.  It leaked oil, and had JB Weld all over, trying to seal the leaks..  It didn't work.  I've got many hours in this thing . . . and it still has a few dents.  Adds character.  Ready for paint.

That's cool. I can't wait to see it on an XL. Been thinking of a way to ditch the kidney tank on my XLH for something like this.
