So I tried cleaning my tank my self with vinegar and bb's. I though it went okay at 1st, and then things got worse than before. This is my daily driver for now and I wanted it running right, it was cutting a little bit, so I changed the plugs, needed to fix the throttle cable, which I did, but...
Hi, I’m in need of a Standard or Deluxe tank to fit a 1980 CX500 in at least salvageable condition and able to be shipped to Australia. Minor dents/surface rust/blemishes are fine as long as there isn’t significant rust inside and no major leaks that can’t be fixed. Thanks
I have a 1979 CX500, i bought a damaged 1980 CX500 for parts and given that the tank was in a very good shape i decided to have it restored and painted by a professional in order to recuperate what i invested on this spare motorcycle (damaged 1980 CX500).
Upfront and clear.
I recently emptied the gas out of my gas tank to do some work on it all, getting it ready for painting etc., and noticed there were dime sized chunks of what appeared to be rust. So I sprayed it out with water many times and some degreaser (Simple Green), and naturally a lot more rust came out...
I'm selling a cx500 Deluxe tank, that while isnt the prettiest, is completely solid, water tight and can hopefully find a good home, the reason that I'm selling is that i have another in slightly better condition.
The out side of it has a few dents smaller dents the biggest of which is...
I'm about to have my gas tank painted and I'm going back and forth on whether I should seal it with Caswell or Red-Kote, or just keep the tank full of gas all the time.
I de-rusted the tank a couple months back with Phosphoric Acid. After drying it I immediately sprayed it with WD-40 and...
I have a cx500 custom tank that is in pretty good condition. original paint is still on there and there are no big dents. i see a small one, but only can be noticed from an angle. I don't have the keys for the tank. Asking $120 for it. Buyer pays for shipping. PM for pictures.
Looking to see if anyone has a 1982 GL500 gas tank available, or if anyone could recommend an alternative?
working on a cafe build. Any help, advice, or recommendations would be greatly appreciated!
Hey guys I've taken my 1982 cx500 tank off to clean out rust. I'm going to be using the electrolysis method but I'm having trouble removing the petcock filter. The petcock and tube came out fine however there still appears to be a plastic liner in the tank connection. I assume this is the actual...
I recently completed my 1978 cx500. It was a rigorous 6 month build.
Bad news is, when I ride, there is a slight leak of gas out of the top of the tank. I am replacing the rubber gasket. The problem I believe that is occurring is one that a new gasket will not fix. Around the top of the tank...
Deluxe tank is off of an 81 Deluxe. This tank is in great shape. There are a few imperfections in the paint but overall I don't think you'll find one in better shape.
Due to the condition of the tank I was thinking $220 plus shipping. Not in a rush to get rid of it. Shoot me a message with...
