If they made an in-frame gas tank for beach cruiser bicycles would you buy one?

Beach cruiser bike owners would you buy an in frame gas tank that fit your beach Cruiser?

If someone offered an in frame 1.5 liter gas tank made of the proper plastic that fit your beach cruiser inside the little triangular space below the top bar, would you buy one?

The idea is interesting, but there are so many variations in the "size" of the opening of a cantilever frame, that It might be difficult to have a "universal" fit.
They would most likely have to be fit to each model bike at a minimum.
It is a cool idea.
If I hadn't already cluttered the space with stuff I certainly would have gone for one in the beginning of my build if the price is/was reasonable.

Ok . My friend's father owns an injected Moulding shop and I am feeling around to see how many people would be interested in this because I'm thinking of developing it with my friend's dad's help. So what I need to do is I need to measure the average size opening and make it slightly shorter and slightly wider so that will accommodate all bicycles. I'm learning something new here so I appreciate you guys hanging with me on this.
 
Yes, but to fit it in the triangular hole, wouldn't the tank have to be wider? Would that get in the way of the legs when peddling? I wouldn't mind a 1.5l tank because I live in the city. That's about 45 miles, I'd be content
 
I would love to see that in plastic. Im building a Micargi fat tire stretch cruiser right now and im building a custom metal tank to fit in the same area, its tons of work but will be worth it.
 
This is what I ended up making.
