debby said:Very nice, Mike! Has that one been slimmed down a little from the standard Interstate design? How much gas does it hold?
I was going to have my steel Interstate tank repainted, but when the paint was stripped we found about a gallon of Bondo underneath :cry:
Now I'm trying to decide what to do with it. Ross Thompson might be able to salvage it but it would be costly. I'd probably be better off cutting my losses on that tank and getting one like yours.

His price is less than 400 pounds, although he has a pretty full order book and about a 4 month wait. I have one of his tanks on my cafe racer. It is a Manx three and a half gallon, short circuit model and is even polished underneath. Given the price of the pound at the moment, this could be an opportune moment to think about this source. He has a web site that will come up if you do a google search under 'thetankshop'
ludwig said:same question as Kber : how do you keep it shiny ? Is it coated ? .
The problem with polished alu tanks is that you have to be very carefull with them .the slightest scratch or dent will show and is hard to repair .
( and they scratch or dent easily )
