Ok.. well after looking around the world.. I have only found one unit that is in production from African Queens. It's a nice unit but by the time I pay for shipping to the States it will cost over $2500. That's a bit much for me.

So I have decided to make my own mold and lay down a proto in Fiberglass and then after making it perfect vacumn bag one out of Carbon Fiber.

I been talking to a few on Advrider.com http://www.advrider....ad.php?t=196917that are showing interest in having me make one for them as well... So I decided to open this up for all that are interested.

post if you would be intersted in having one made for you. I beleive that this unit can be adapted to fit any of the Acerbis 6 gallon rally tanks (Yamaha, Honda CRFX, KTM)

here is the initial design that still needs tweaking
