Thanks! The weld is for a tube thru the tank for mounting it to the frame backbone. A lot of the old tracker tanks do this. The tank is mainly supported by the frame backbone on rubber pads and then held on by the center bolt and two brackets on the front of the tank. Both bolt and brackets are rubber mounted too.

I know one day it will go down and that will be a sad day, but its a dual sport and meant to be ridden. I do have the crash bar to help protect it though.
