Mustang Gas TanksWhen the Bobbers became Choppers in the early Sixties one of the mandatory changes was a small gas tank. Lacking a well-stocked aftermarket for Custom parts the boys had to be creative and used what was available from other bikes. The gas tank of Mom´s old little Mustang motorbike, for example, was just perfect with the right size and a nice teardrop shape. The Mustang was a lightweight motorcycle built by Gladden Products Corporation in Glendale, California, from 1946 to 1965. This style soon became popular and it didn´t take long before the first aftermarket gas tanks appeared which had adopted the design.
