Most motorcycles have steel gas tanks and over time the corrosive nests of the gas and oxidation on the inside of the tank can result in slow gas leaks.

When this occurs, most motorcycle riders opt to fix the tank rather than replace. It would seem that the most popular fix is with an internal gas tank liquid type epoxy liner.

If you’re thinking of doing this to your bike, watch this video because it can save you having to repaint your gas tank!

San Diego chopper motorcycleFrom Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

A chopper is a type of custom motorcycle which emerged in the United States in the mid-1960s. The chopper is perhaps the most extreme of all custom styles, often using radically modified steering angles and lengthened forks for a stretched-out appearance. They can be built from an original motorcycle which is modified (“chopped”) or built from scratch. Some of the characteristic features of choppers are long front ends with extended forks often coupled with an increased rake angle, hardtail frames (frames without rear suspension), very tall “ape hanger” or very short “drag” handlebars, lengthened or stretched frames, and larger than stock front wheels. The “sissy bar”, a set of tubes that connect the rear fender with the frame, and which are often extended several feet high, is a signature feature on many choppers.
