We repair dents, pin holes, weld up cracks, splits, replace tabs, remove failed sealer, and rust from motorcycle fuel tanks. We take care not to harm painted surfaces, however sometimes this is not possible. The tank is then etched and sealed to resist moisture, rust etc. from various elements in today's fuel and environment. New tanks are welcomed at a reduced rate as rust removal is not necessary in most cases. Many tanks we receive have been sitting up, have no leaks and are coated with varnish sludge and rust which is removed down to the bare metal. This is preformed with no harm to the existing paint in most cases, saving the cost of coating. The first tank we repaired and coated was in the mid 1970's on a 9.8 Mercury outboard which is still in use today. Our prices range from $100--$300 depending on requirements plus shipping. The package you send us the tank in will be the package we ship it back in. We work with the customer on a case by case basis to accomplish various job requirements to fit the customer's desires. Pour up a cup of coffee, sit down and give us a call at 601-376-9304 anytime between 8am-5pm CST. Ask for D.C. Hall, owner of DC's Radiator Repair… A GREAT PLACE TO TAKE A LEAK!
Below are 4 pictures of a T-140 Triumph gas tank cleaned of rust and coated after 5 years of service. These pictures are taken from the inside of the tank with a borescope.
This photo shows the vertical tube that is welded in place, housing the tank mounting bolt.
This is a dowel for the screw that mounts the tank badge.
And the drain cock filter inter mounting.
Finally, this is a seam toward the rear of the tank where the tunnel intersects with the surrounding sheet metal. Notice the coating has filled the seams very evenly, a must for proper rust prevention.
