This is/was the original tank for the project bike. Looks like someone may have used a large sledge hammer to tune it up. I had a bad feeling about trying to save it... That is until I met Dave Williams.



Dave tried to tack and pull the dent, but it wouldn't budge. He then cut the side of the tank off (the outside!!) and used what is mostly a lost art these days... He hammered the dent out and welded the tank back up. Paint will be applied in the next week. Dave Williams is a true Master Craftsman!!!
