I'm still looking... been working long hours and have not had a chance to get to my storage where the tanks likely are. Might be the weekend before I can.

sorry my posts have been coming through pretty vague iv only got a half a screen to look at I broke my phone the other day but here are pics of the tank... the tank itself can be cleaned and sealed in my opinion but those cracks are weak and need to be cut out and patched or maybe you have another idea?...

On your cracks, most of pics are of bike. Two tank pics look the same and taken so far away I can't see what's cracked?

Anyway, sending a PM on the tank I found. I thought I had another one... still looking.
