Cafe seat attempt...

So I'm drooling over the polished alloy cafe seat and depressed that its so far out of my budget...

So I'm trying to make one. The only way I could think of is to find a gas tank and cut a cowl out of it and modify the seat pan to fit.

An ATV gas tank from the scrap yard looked like it would work so I brought it home and scoped out the situation..
