    I tried a pair of Bunton tanks on my Workman early on, couldn't stop brand new vented caps from leaking fuel. There ok on a lawnmower but on a hill with potholes is another thing. Maybe with the right cap.

    Many times that problem can be corrected by forming a new cap gasket & making a tiny vent hole over to one side, rather than the center.

    A friend of mine has been thinking about making a gas tank out of an old propane cylinder like this http://mclendons.com/img/products/10/10225120.jpg. He wants it to lay sideways in front of the handle bars. The gas cap would be mounted on the side (which will be the top). I think it would look a lot like these tanks. Personally I don't think it would look that good but I prefer clean looking bikes and he prefers rusty rat bikes so these tanks would totally fit his style.

    Anyone ever find a supplier of behind the seat cylinder gas tanks that attach to the bottom of the seat or seat post?

    Back to the subject I found a place that makes nice custom and pre-fab Aluminum gas tanks.

    Coyote Tanks in AZ http://www.coyotetanks.com

    I had them fab me one with brackets to mount it to to the seat bolts and used the spare rag joint metal semi circle pieces as the braces.

    ~$120 delivered for the tank which was custom, I had them offset the filler and put on mounting tabs the width of the seat post bolts.

    The bike is a rare Fleetwood Cadillac with a NuVinci N170S disc hub and new springer front fork and handlebars, Jackshafted 2010 66cc Skyhawk and SBP X-chamber.

    The tank made the bike I think ;-}
