    Well I've owned my TeeDub for 2 years now and have 10K miles on it. I own a lot of bikes but this is one of my favorites. I use it for my daily commute to work (15 miles each way through desert roads). The only issue I have with the bike, besides the horrific stock chain is the small gas tank. After seeing some Clarke tanks and other retrofitted tanks I decided to fabricate my own using a stock TW tank I bough on ebay. I sealed the tank with POR-15 gas tank sealer. Holds a bit over 4 gallons now....[​IMG] Its almost finished.....

    Just picked up my first 89' tw. Already started seeing where to cut on the tank. Any finished photos or did you dump the project?
