This custom made gas tank for the Honda Shadow VLX, aka Honda Shadow VT600 fits your bikes dual backbone perfectly! Includes TJ Brutal Customs gas cap!
This is not a Sporty tank that has been hacked apart, no, this tank sits perfectly on the back of your bike, is made by hand and will last for years to come.
To mount the tank, set the tank on your bike, loosely thread the rear tank mount to the stock rear tank mounting hole. Look at the forward mounting tab, It will be over the hole in your frame that you need to open up to slightly bigger than 3/8". Take the tank off the bike, carefully drill your forward mounting tab hole, and bolt the tank on!

Tanks are not lined. We recommend using Red-Kote!
**Note: To prevent spillage from fuel expansion and vibration, do not overfill, fill within about an inch from the filler neck. We also recommend using T-tape on all plumbing threads. You need to line these tanks. they will rust eventually and then you will be big sad when the gas starts to ruin your sexual 1800$ paint job from the inside out. **
Guess I have to say this - These tanks are raw steel. If you dont paint them, they will rust.
