    Ive shared my pictures before but probably not in the correct format. I used a Pagsta chopper tank and it worked out well. I have a picture of the two tanks side by side.

    Update!

    Honda Part # 17611-028-000 is perfect fit (order two of them)

    Got it all attached, and rather easy and inexpensive. I was going to get a 1/2" weldable rod but then I found this zink plated bolt that was $1.85 (I know about welding zink, gives off toxic fumes)

    I will tac weld the threaded rod to the frame, its already in the hole snug had to hammer it in. (you will see what I mean by pics)

    Yeah you can get those tanks for $65-85 on ebay, and about $10 for mounting cushion/hardware. Sadly OMB site is selling the same tanks for $95-100. search for Honda Monkey Gas Tank

    Ok, I actually got my sportster tank off ebay for $90 already painted and never used so not so bad after all.

    The problem with my mc tank is the petcock comes out the middle and with the angled backbone of the baja frame there's a 1/2 gal or so of gas that can't reach the petcock and I can't level off the tank without the forks hitting the tank.

    The Pagsta is tough to find. The tank is painted but the flames are decals. Once I get the rest of the bike ready I'll ship everything off to get blasted. The frame will be powder coated but the tank will probably be painted.
