Making the xs650 Boardtracker tank from scratch!
Tons of hours involved, but here's the quick version...
fabrication of fuel tank required template creation, mockup, sheet metal
cutting with both plasma cutter and beverly shear, metal brake to bend up
flanges, and shrinking and stretching to match the curve of our frame.
Finally welded together with the tig welder using silicon bronze rod, then
sanded smooth and pressure tested.
