I sent my original tank to Moyer Fuel Tank Renu in Pennsylvania:

It was full of pinholes once they blasted it, so they couldn't do anything to restore it. I wound up finding another tank in FL that I just received. It's o.k. for now but will eventually need to be repainted and resealed.

Here is the bike as of this weekend. Took it for its first ride in about 10 years, albeit through the parking lot. I still need to get the carbs properly tuned and balanced, then new tires and spokes:
