The classic axed chopper tank is also referred to as a wasp or alien gas tank. It gets its name from the process through which its built: A set of split fat bob tanks are "axed" or cut up and then welded together to create one tank. We did all this work for you. This one is fit with dual caps: one is a working filler, the other is a dummy and it works as a great place to hide a few small things.

Tanks are pressure tested at the factory, but it is best to test again before you paint it. Be sure fit of tank, mounting hardware, petcocks and gas caps are true prior to painting. No stress is applied to the tabs when bolting them to the frame, this can lead to cracking of welds. If needed, use leather or rubber washes to shim between the tabs and the backbone to ensure an even fit. Do not sand seams or welded edges of gas tanks, if needed use a thin spread of body filler prior to painting. Throttle Addiction warranties gas tank defects however we do not cover paint work. Ensure your tank arrived damage free BEFORE you paint!
Tank is a little rough and will need some body work, but it's cool and for the price it's not too bad. Throttle Addiction was awesome, had it shipped in like 30 minutes and I'm in Wisconsin, too, so had it the next day. Can't beat that!
This product is a good as i was hoping it would be. Excellent turn around and fast delivery. I'll certainly be considering ordering from you again as opposed to within Australia, and will be passing on your details to my many bikie mates.
Just gotta fab up some brackets
