    I'd like to fabricate a copper gas tank for my bike. Any resources known for a brass threaded lip and matching gas cap? All leads appreciated.

    A brass garden hose adapter with a brass garden hose cap from Lowes or Home Despot will work. The gasket for the cap will need to be changed, as the gas makes it swell up and leak. I saw this set up on a bike this summer. It really looked good.
