Nice job! Where did you get the fuel cans and mounts?

Gas can mounts were bought on eBay and the cans are Briggs and Stratton that I purchased at a local farm store. Best part is that they are CARB compliant!

Cage was built using scrap from a metal dumpster and expanded metal for the flooring came from the same place.

What type straps are you using to secure the cans to the mounts?

They are the military style web straps that came with the can holders. I half heartedly looked for metal straps, but haven't been real serious about it yet.
