    Wtb; cx500c tank or a deluxe/standard tank

    I have a 1980 cx500c and the tank has a weld spot and no amount of bond will hide it. I like the deluxe tank. I would like something that is fairly clean and I will have a professional paint it/ clean it, I am not good with the finish work with Bondo.

    If you have any other suggestions on tanks that would fit, like a cb750 tank or any aftermarket tanks?

    Thanks for time and consideration.


    Thanks,
    DS

    FYI - a Deluxe tank will not fit on a CX500C without modifications because it is longer and does not bolt on in front. The seat will need to be trimmed back and mounts made for the front.

    BTW it would help to list your location
    1980 CX500 Army
    1980 CX500 Scrambler (from Murray)
    1978 CX500
    2014 Honda CB500X
    2016 Victory Empulse TT (electric)
    1970 Honda S90Z (from Indonesia)
    1974 Suzuki GT380
    1985 Honda CMX250C Rebel




    On a bike, no one ever asks "Are we there yet?".
