Alright, here’s the deal; I bought an older bike, and the gas tank needs patching or replacing.
A brand new tank would cost around $600, so I’d rather not go that route if possible. One person said to have it welded, but when I talked to an experienced welder (owns his own company that does that kind of thing), he said it would most likely develop pinhole leaks soon after being welded.
He then recommended I go to a boat shop, and buy the fiberglass stuff they use to patch boats with, and use that, since it’s apparently very reliable stuff. So I called a boat shop, and the lady said she didn’t think using the fiberglass stuff was a good idea.
I don’t know if she really knows what she’s talking about though, the welder guy on the other hand has lots of experience with motorcycles.
I know there’s a good chunk of people with motorcycles here, any suggestions?
