Pan/Shovel update

As stated in previous posts; my goal is to build my idea of a killer bike while keeping the spending down!  Well, one way to do this is to turn other's trash into treasures.  In the same way that the early wishbone frame was crying out for help; well so was this early oem Horseshoe oil tank.  Not sure how this crack came about, but it needed help nonetheless.  The crack ran across the top seam as well, so I had to start by grinding out some of it, and then using a shaping hammer, I got everything to line back up as it should.  Buttoned it all up with teh TIG, and now it's ready to ride the ride again.
