Has anyone found a source for a stretch tank for a 00-03 softail? Everything I see is for prior to 00.

Have you considered buying a used Deuce Tank. Not really an aftermaket cutom tank per say but different. It is longer than a fat bob tank. I would think it would go right on a softail frame, but not sure. You usually can find them on Ebay. Just a thought. Mike R.

There's a stretched tank for the 00-02 softails in the 2002 JP Cycles catalog, but, Its a little different with a "Flip UP" dash. Although they say you can mount your stock dash on it. Also, I've been told that drag specialties has recently released a streched tank ,for the 00-02 models, as well. However, they are for the carb bikes only. If you come across one for the EFI models, let me know.

I have been waiting since 00 for tanks to come out and so far have not found any. I just ordered some 7 gallon stretch tanks. I am gonna weld them together and make my own mounting tabs. I will send pics when done.

Hey Fattire,
That sounds like a great idea. That will make your already bad-ass bike look even better. I cant wait to see the pics when your done. Keep us posted with your progress. - Falcon:D

Are you looking for bigger capacity tanks or just the stretched look? If the latter, there are plenty ot kits that allow you to weld extensions on a stock tank -- I did this on my last bike and it turned out trick. They definitely sell kits for the 00-03 tanks -- I think I got mine through Drag Specialties.

Just to add my 2 cents here: Be forewarned. The stretch tanks use up part of the frame the seat uses too!

FYI... I was down at Jim Nasi Customs in Scottsdale AZ last week and talked to them on this subject. They said they can fabricate a stretched and/or oversized tank for the 00-03 bikes. (either carb or F.I.) They can do just about any tank you want for around 3500.00 (Ouch)
