Gas Tank Options

Hi all,

I ride an older sport bike, an 88 ZX600c that I've revived from the dead.

Anwway, my gas tank has developed two pinhole leaks along the seam under the tank, very close to the petcock. For the moment I've patched them with JB Weld.

I've looked at a new tank but could be around $600. I've tried ebay but the only ones I can see there are in worse condition than mine.

So.... what are my options with this tank? Should I just get mine repaired or is there something else I could consider?

Try Bent Bike or Supersport Motorcycle Works in Langley for something used. I got a brand spanker for my 80's virago for around a hundred awhile back. Supersport had three of them.

Get yours repaired.

Kreem is what I used to use long ago. I don't know if they still make it or not but take a look for it.
