Hey Folks has anyone used a big twin weld on tank repair for the 45 ? I haven't been able to find one for my WLA and this looks the same, any thoughts or suggestions ?

I know someone who has a 45 with small 3.5 gallon fat-bobs and a shovelhead dash. This bike was rebuilt from a chopper about 10 years ago. Of course, it means it has an under-seat oil tank of some sort, some kind of aftermarket item. There are plenty of 45s using BT seat posts, t-bars and seats.

My best guess is that it could probably be made to fit but you might end up changing the tabs on the tanks.
Shoot, a man could have a good weekend in Dallas with all that stuff...
