At the moment I'm still working more badly than right on my tank. And this sheet metal work doesn't suit me at all. I'll only show you the pictures when it's done.

C'mon, show us what are you working on. I'm sure it exceeds our expectations. Aluminum gas tank? :D

So Vlad, I don't make the tank out of aluminum. I don't dare to lean that far out of the window "yet".

I see you haven't received my Christmas present to you yet. It's up to the Romanian post, not the German post. The package left Germany on December 16, 2021.

So with the tank, it's going very, very, very slowly. You have to deal with the subject of sheet metal working with a form hammer first.
This is absolutely new to me !!!!!

So as already written the upper page was made by someone who can do it. What that person cannot keep his word is what the finished gas tank costs. I paid over double the agreed price and got a half-finished petrol tank for it.

so I somehow started to build something there. This is what the base looks like from below.

I definitely wanted to have the fuel gauge, so I installed the floor pan from a Suzuki Bandit type WVA9. I got the sheet metal, or rather the petrol tank, as a gift. The fuel barrel was from a fallen motorcycle. My welder wanted to weld in the sheets so that they overlap. So I roughly cut the sheet metal.

Honest ?????

Damn !!!! a huge crap !!!!!!
That is not mine !!!! I don't build like that !!! only sharp edges in the fuel tank.
So the old floor pan worked piece by piece with the serrated lock washer until the contour of the floor pan matches the contour of the petrol tank.

It's hard to see, but it fits in perfectly.

I also had to knock the floor panel straight because it hit the upper frame cross tube. Now I've started to manufacture the first sheet metal myself.

It just occurred to me when I was planning that with the tank, but I ordered tools specially for it. (That was 4 years ago !!!!!!)

This is what the first 3 steel sheets looked like that I somehow managed to get there.

Took the tank home and tried it in the garage as it fits so far. Just shit !! The steel sheets are going in the wrong direction !!! For now it doesn't matter. Somehow I have to plan the further lower part, otherwise the fuel tank volume will be reduced.
It looks stupid but it has to be.

And now there’s something I can do again. Transfer the measurements to a sheet of metal and shape the whole thing with the folding bench !!!

Back to the motorcycle to check whether everything fits this time!

So the rear old floor pan is now welded in, below the floor pan is welded off. IT STAYS SO !!!!!!

From now on the steel sheets made will be modified. The middle one is made new and the steel sheets on the left and right can still be changed.

It's already going in the right direction!

Taken the fuel tank back into the garage to see where the fuel tap will be.
Marked and then quickly made 2 points with the cored wire welder. FITS !!!

Another little check. As always, very little space. So then next week make the 2 missing steel sheets and then the fuel tank will be completely welded off.

I am happy when this chapter is finished.

This is the main reason why I started doing everything by myself. I'm tired of people wasting my money and my time.

You are doing a great work with your tank! Keep us updated!

First all the parts that can still be welded outside have been welded.

And then welded the whole thing into the petrol tank.

Then adjusted the front bracket in the garage ................

....................... and then everything welded on and the weld seams cleaned again to check.

So now over the Christmas holidays, adjust 2 small side plates from an old bandit gasoline tank (sponsored by Fighterchris - thank you again !!!!!!!) so that the tank follows the frame contour of the bandit very well.

The sheet metal from an original bandit gasoline tank was originally intended for the contour parallel to the frame.

Much sanded until almost nothing was left.

So new plan. Of course I didn't like it again.
