Default re: Motorized Bicycle Take a Tip...Leave a Tip

Unsure if I left this before.

I like goped tanks, but they leak at the mid-level fuel grommet. Sooo, I use JB WELD and a plastic swatch cut out of a cordless drill carrying case to plug the hole. A 25-cent coin fits perfectly on the grommet hole, but I'm too stingy. LOL

I also lose gas caps. Sooo, I made a temporary fix by cutting off 11 inches of bicycle tire tubing, clean it thoroughly, then slip one end over the the filler hole. Then I tied a loose knot in the tube. This allows the tube to vent, but not leak gasoline.

Don't know how long this "cap" will last. I just made my first one tonight.
