My gas tank is beyond repair and I need to find a replacement, its a 1980 GL1100. The acid wash pretty much ate right thru the metal.

thanks

Bill

Bill, best advice I can give you is keep a watch on Flea-Bay, and to check with these guys, they might have one. Power Sports Nation Drop 'em a note, they don't have one listed at the moment, but may have one out in the yard.

If you get one, and it has rust in it, don't acid wash it. The problem you had is precisely why I advise people against doing that. Do a forum search for the word Rusteco, it will strip the rust, and won't eat anything else.

Thanks for the Rusteco tip, I will keep it in mind for future reference....I found a gas tank locally that is in good condition and ready to use, now the fun part of swapping them out.

Good Day,

New to the site, trying to find a tank for a 1983 Honda goldwing GL 1100, the bike was given to us from my stepmom who passed in dec. The bike has been sitting for around 10yrs, with 18,000 miles on it. Unfortunatly the tank has some leaks in it, can you tell me the condition of the tank, rust and so forth.

Thanks,

Debbie
