Re: Carbon fuel tanks

Is there any special coating inside the tank?

Why would you need to buy a new tank? I'm assuming he has the molds already, no?

Re: Carbon fuel tanks

No words can explain what I see, I don't like to have carbon on my bike since I would paint over it but what you got going on.

I've molds for this types so I don't need a fuel tank for it anymore. If you want a other type I need a tank to copy.You don't need a brand new tank for it as long as it is in good condition. Send me a pm if you have any questions ( not responding for a week because of a holiday).

The fuel tank it self is fuel resistant and there is a coating in it to seal it.
