Show me MB5s with different tanks

The tank on my mb5 is pretty much fucked. Before I go spend $100+ on a used replacement, let see some MB5s with other tanks on them, to give me some inspiration to say fuck an mb5 tank

Re: Show me MB5s with different tanks

Surely someone has done this before?

Re: Show me MB5s with different tanks

I came pretty close to it, considered it awhile, but no. I got a big ass chopper tank on it for a second, it was the only one that close to fit easily with the wide split bar mounting for the mb5's

Only tanks I know of that are good fits are the h100 which uses the same frame

saw a guy at a vintage thing who made a little fuel cell type tank that fit under a gpr style plasting tank outer

Re: Show me MB5s with different tanks

Mine has a magnum tank on it ;)

Re: Show me MB5s with different tanks

^haha yeah "SH*itybike" tank (edited)

Re: Show me MB5s with different tanks

With some brazing you could maybe restore your old tank or use whats left of it to create something different

Re: Show me MB5s with different tanks

I think it doesn't happen much because its such an awkward frame to put a normal style tank on.

For sure.. Guess it is as tough as I thought it would be to put something else on there..

Re: Show me MB5s with different tanks

yeah lots of the ahrma guys just make a fiberglass cover and run a small aluminum bottle tank under it, to keep classic looks but loose weight

you could just cut the bottom out the MB tank and put a nother tank under it.

but yeah, shouldn't be too hard to fix or buy a new one, that caswell epoxy shit is pretty gnar for fixing tore up tanks, its almost structural its so tough.

Re: Show me MB5s with different tanks

god i just wasted like 2 hours on a string of motorcycles and mopeds etc etc, all starting from a search for custom mb5. fuck

Re: Show me MB5s with different tanks

some of those late model four stroke dirtbike tanks are real wide to clear a big head with cams, then they come way down on the sides.

Re: Show me MB5s with different tanks

How fucked is the MB5 tank? I have a few holes in mine, I'm going to try the solder trick this winter. Run with it shitty till then. I'll let you know if it works.

I saw daveysaves either riding this MB5 or one that closely resembling it.

I thought it was a moped at first. Contact him to see if it was his or a loaner.

He only answers texts and emails,so don't expect to talk to him on the phone.

It has a Negrini/Pacer tank.

Attached are files of pictures of the MB5 with the Negrini/Pacer tank.

It's got an 8 inch long gash along the side of it near the bottom that's about a quarter inch wide. As well as some pinholes on the bottom, and along one of the seams.

And that negrini tank mb5 looks great.

Re: Show me MB5s with different tanks

That's a fucked up tank! It just sucks that to find a new one it's half the price of the bike.

Re: Show me MB5s with different tanks

Jam a stick in it!

Pacer tank!?! That rules! Most especially because of my initial inset tank boner coming from...

Re: Show me MB5s with different tanks

dang, crazy thay fits in there.

Re: Show me MB5s with different tanks

i really like the idea of cutting out the bottom and fitting another tank inside.

Re: Show me MB5s with different tanks

All the moped children should at least have a Bernzomatic TS 8000 $50 at Home Depot for brazing projects
