SE Qld tank repair
Hey guys I am in need of some brazing of the tank mounts on my bike to stop the traditional fuel leaks. I cannot find anyone in Gympie here that I would trust to do it properly, the radiator shop is full of children and the only engineering shop guy I know who can do it will only do a full tank repair "as that is the only way to do it properly. Strip the tank fully reweld the seam and both mounts"
Anyone had this done on the Sunshine Coast that they can recommend or in desperation Brisbane.
I could wait till I repaint the bike and go the full strip route but at best that is not likely till end of the year and I'm really keen to tidy up these little issues now, now that I've got most of my little niggling issues sorted. It is also only a small weep so I'm pretty sure it's just from the usual flex in the crap execution of the original mounts.
