Custom Super Stretched Sportster Tank:

I was asked if I could make a Sportster tank 27" long.

This is the finished tank:

Custom stretched Sportster style tank 27" long from front to back with hidden mounts underneath. It's also getting a flush aircraft style cap. I started with a flat piece of metal and an old Sportster tank:

In Progress:

The sheet metal was tacked to a jig and it was bent to form the tunnel, then it was clamped and folded to form the bottom.
Then it was once again tacked on to the jig:

The last 2 pictures above show the front half of the Sportster tank being tacked into place to form the leading edge of the tank.

Here it is with the shell and the flush mount cap bung tacked on:
