The R5e Gets a New Tank

This is a ripitoutoftheboxandrundownstairstotheshoptoseeitonthebike situation, and I just happened to have a photo of it, but thanks to Rick Merhar at Accu-Products I have a freakin AWESOME new tank.  It’s light as a feather, and for the first time I didn’t have to cut the bottom out of a gas tank or build one myself.  This is the top mold from a vintage 1972 Yamaha T3 tank.  No gas tank hole, no bottom…  just pure 1972 vintage roadracing deliciousness.

…stay tuned, when you see it in all it’s yellow goodness!

edit:  Got it outside today:
