So gas tank. What do I do about it? The stock one is just not going to fly, and the blue one you see in all the pics had to completely have the underside cut out in order to fit over the huge back bone of the Virago! Luckily…I found a solution.
Virago tank, meet nameless Yamaha donor tank.
Here is what’s left of the Virago original tank.
Now I know I’m not the first person to graft tanks together. But I guarantee I’m the first to graft THESE tanks together! Of course I still have lots of welding of sheet metal to do in order to seal and finish up the tank, but at least now it fits snugly on the bike using the original mounts! Today my goal is to get the wheel prepped and ready for tires. And hopefully finish the tank so I can caswell coat it soon.
