Ok....got some work done. Picked up some 18 guagecold rolled steel, made a pattern, split the tank, smoothed the dents on the english wheel, cut out a tank expander piece, mocked it all up and managed to annoy my wife with all the hammering and the stench of grinding metal. Tired now.
The tank will end up being the same width at the seat but 4 inches wider at the filler. All told...my calculations are showing that the size should end up at about 4.7 to 4.8 gallon. At 45 mpg I will end up with about a 213 mile range on the high end. That exceeds my goal of at least 190 miles. I am happy that my goal of .75 to 1 gallon is going to be exceeded.
Enjoy the pics.
Fury addiction in Illinois..but headed toward Georgia as soon as possible
