DR 800 fuel tank

I managed to pick up a brand new old stock tank on ebay a few years ago to replace the original which was starting to weep on the LHS due to a small patch of corrosion. The old tank has just sat in my garage since then, however I've just got access to oxy/acetylene brazing gear and have managed to make a pretty neat repair. I've also brazed up some of the spot welded seams. I'm now going to acid clean the inside and give it a coat of black metal paint. I don't want to sell it on ebay, I'd rather sell it on the Forum. I will post some photos when it's ready. I reckon £100 is reasonable but you'll have to collect from SE London.

Cheers mate,
I'm in no rush to sell it, it's going to a proper DR owner thru the forum! Also got a good yellow DRZ400 sm tank if anyone is interested.
