Virtually rust free my foot, if it hadn't been so long since I bought it from the guy on eBay I'd be wanting my money back.



While it seemed to clear up nicely and was rinsing clean, later a big chunk appeared and when I went to start stripping the paint I virtually punched through near the rear at the very top of the tank leaving about a 1/4" hole. Oddly enough when I probe around through the filler neck it all sounds and feels solid. IF this were the only hole it could be repaired but I don't think I'd trust it any further than I could throw it.



Anyhow, if someone needs the tank off a Custom as a "place holder" when they're trying to think up seat mods it's yours for the price of shipping.

You need another custom tank. I have one that is sound yet but rusty inside. It isn't dent free and it has been spread apart a little. But that spreading apart story is for another day. Its yours for shipping.

Thanks, but I've still got a good one on the bike, this was just a spare I hoped to be abe to paint while I rode with the other.
