How to buy a gas tank and screw it up.

The tank volume on my Honda Steed motorcycle is only 9 liters. With an average consumption of about 5l / 100km it is enough for about 170 kilometers. Thus, every 150 kilometers I have to look for a gas station. Leaving Moscow with a full tank I need to refuel at least 4 more times to get to Minsk.
Redoing the tank is too difficult and expensive, so I spent the whole winter looking for a tank from later motorcycles, since in '93 I began to put 11 liter tanks. It’s not a lot either, but it’s still 50 kilometers left and refueling every 200.

1. And now, finally, for adequate money last week, one tank came up from the analysis of the motorcycle in '96. I bought it for 4,500, but it was slightly worse for cosmetics and more rusty inside.

3. Repair of a tank in a professional paintbrush costs an average of about 5 thousand. I decided to confine myself to local repairs for reasons of: “I won't do it anyway anyway.”
I didn’t try to achieve anything here and nothing perfect. I simply cleaned the main section with a drill, walked with 120-800 skins, then blew a couple of layers of soil and paint from a can.

four.The main mistake, of course, is that I sealed almost all of the tape with only a small patch open.
By the way, it turned out that the paint from the can is very easily washed off with simple gasoline, so you have to be careful.

5. I forgot to take a photo in daylight on the street, but even here it can be seen that my repair turned out like a piece of scotch on the tank. But the worst is not that.
