AMF gas tank narrowing and frisco style!

Just started messing with one of my extra has tanks. I drilled the old petcock out and scribed a piece of 16 ga. Steel to fill it in. Found my center and made some marks with sharpie. Took out the cutting wheel and got to choppin. Now I need to make the new tunnel and cut a new filler hole and weld a new cap on.

81' XS part II hardtail section

Here are some pics of the process I'm taking to make this one off rigid hardtail. From different diameter slugs on the lathe to smooth bends on the bender to fishmouth notches.
Roughly half way done with pre-fitting of the hardtail, I still need to fab the axle mounts and bend the main center downtube.
