I recently received the aluminum tank that I ordered about a month ago from the eBay supplier, Royal Choppers and I'm very happy with the quality. While it isn't a perfect match, it's pretty close to original. The only problem is that repo badges don't exactly fit in the recesses but I'm OK with that problem. While the photo's make the new tank look larger, that really isn't the case as I've measured to compare and it's within an 1/8' of the originals taken at various locations. The gas cap is not so great, but that is what I expected, in fact I didn't even anticipate a cap. I installed tank petcock's after flushing the tank and will keep some gas in there for a week to make sure it doesn't leak, but I would be surprised based on the welds....but who knows. Time will tell.
