    It holds fuel, has good flow to carb, and gives it a sporty look.....I bent down the front lip, retapped a petcock on bottom front, bent studs so it would fit around double tubes. You might want to cut them off so you don't risk cracking tank. This tank was already cracked, I used fuel proof glue by locktite, and covered that with jb weld. It's been holding fuel for 3 days now. I don't fill it completely up, but when riding, it doesn't leak at cap. It still holds a good amount of fuel. Keep in mind that not all beach cruiser frames are the same. PC110469.JPG PC110467.JPG

    looks a whole lot better than sticking it up top.
