We tried the ubiquitous red plastic 5L jerrycans and found them wanting. They leak, even when only partly filled which leaves the smell of gasoline hanging in the air at all times. They become brittle after being exposed to daylight for extended periods, and lose their colour. Its is very hard to open them after a while, we needed a plier to do that. The nozzle inside detoriates to the point where it falls appart after a year or so while dipped in fuel inside the can. The cans themselves offer no option for theft protection. They can even crack open in case of impact with the road; and spray you with gasoline. Something to be avoided at all costs. So we ventured to find a better solution for the long distance rider.
It took us some fiddling and quite a few failed attempts, but we finally constructed a perfect steel holding mechanism. It fits a standard 5 liter metal jerry can to the millimeter exact between handlebar, crash bar and turn signal. We used the biggest crash bar on the market for testing. These cans are much more solid than their plastic cousins. Unless your bike gets run over by a truck it will not break. We also think it looks much more professional.
Each holder is individually CNC laser cut from 1.5mm stainless steel. (the first batch was done with regular steel) and then primed and powder coated.
