RC171 fuel tank...

Sort of.  Not exactly.  Building an aluminum gas tank for an on going personal project.  A 1961 CB77 superhawk to be exact.  Trying to replicate (with some updates) 1960's Grand Prix motocycles.  Hope to get this project going so I can race in the AHRMA vintage race in April.
Should have made a wooden buck for consistency... But oh well. I think it should be ok.

Forgot to take pictures of building these parts. Wheeled, shrunk, stretched,  radius rolled and welded aluminum. Bottom tunnel- 5052 .090".  Sides- 3003 .063".  I'll try to take more pictures as I go.
