ironhead progress #3






so with my frame only being 7 inches wide it has been hard to find an oil tank that doesn't look
goofy..either they stick off the sides( most chopper oil bags are 11 inches) or they just are too big to fit altogether. i found some that would do the trick...bomb shape or vertical ...which i like but i don't have hundreds to spend, so today eli and i went down to the scrap yard and bought a piece of pipe that was 6 inches in diameter and 7 inches long...what we ended up with was the stubby lil guy you see here....dished out side to make room for the chain.... and one heck of a filler hole..
if you can't afford it do it yourself....it may not be as perfect as the chrome one you bought online but it gets the job done for a fraction of the price. and its got soul...
