    Default gas tanks?

    seems my tanks in my 76 rogers need replacing. Anyone know if i can buy replacements or am i looking at custom build tanks ? who sells the aluminun cyl tanks? I've also seen a company that claims to "line" tanks , is this a worthy repair?

    What dimensions? I have some really nice bullet tanks for sale....

    Did yours have brackets or tabs? Mine have brackets, I went a different direction and need to get rid of these.

    Aluminum? how bad are the tanks, if aluminum they can be welded and patched easily. If they are glass tanks, time to change them out

    I haven't pulled them yet ,but they look pretty rusty ,so I think trying to patch would be a losing battle,don't you?

    The tanks in my rogers where pretty messed up when i bought it and I tore em out and "lined" them with a 3 step process I found for about $80 about 8 years ago. worked great for a fraction of the cost.
