Default Re: Hello Hello!!

Okay, I got the motor mounted and the rear wheel together. My next problem is mounting the tank. The Northwoods Ridgdale is aluminum and has a way oversized top bar. The studs are to close together to fit around. I found that if I bent them out a little bit they would work in the front, but I'll have to find a longer strap. The rear of the tank is another story. The top tube is wider in the back and interferes with both the studs on the tank and the fuel valve. It looks like I may have touse an offset on the fuel valve get it off the top tube and I'm not sure of the best way to secure the rear of the tank. Any ideas???
I found a lot of info about mounting the engeine but can't find anything about mounting the gas tank to an oversized frame.
