Fuel Tank Leak...

The inside tank sealant came loose, cleaned most of it out. Now there is a small leak. Replacement tanks are not available. Any suggestions on how to fix or modifying a 250 tank?

If you can get the failed sealant out (use good quality paint remover and give it time to work), just tape over the pinhole(s) and use Caswell epoxy tank sealer. It not only lines the tank, it also strengthens it in the process. https://www.caswellplating.com/epoxy...-to-5-gal.html

Keepin' all the left over parts. Gonna use 'em to build another bike!
