So I have been thinking of a fully suspended bike with a 49cc 2-stroke pit bike engine over the back wheel and thought about using one of these for the fuel tank.(6"x8" or 6"x10")
I would mount it right behind the seat over the engine.

Any thoughts other than it is very pricey.

I dont think it's to wide in fact I'm kinda wide myself at 18" or so.

Soooo, a 6"dia. by 16" long tank would still be less than me (sad sort of, OH WELL :D) but the 6" X 12" might be the best choice.
I guess I could get the engine and see how wide it is and go from there, kind of match it up.

I do think those spun aluminum tanks look great.

Cool stuff there! I really like those tanks. I have a couple of small alum gas cylinders that I may turn into tanks someday.

I want to get the under-bar mount tank but I don't know if it would be too big for my frame. I just think the teardrop tank looks like it's trying too hard to be a 'real' motorbike tank.
