I have an 87 intruder vs1400. I’m struggling to find a decent fuel tank for it. The one I have has a rust spot about the size of a silver dollar and a few smaller spots. Would it be repairable and if so, how? Thanks for any reaponses! ✊

Do you mean it's rusted through? If so, cut out the rusted places and weld patches over them. If you aren't sure how to do that a welding shop would be the place to take it to. Sometimes radiator repair shops will do that for you too.
That’s right. Rusted through. I tried the job weld tank epoxy but it didn’t work long. Maybe 2 days and fuel started leaking through the epoxy. Thanks for the help. I’ll try welding patches
