You do have some options on the petcock... Go to your local Ace or Lowes or Home Depot and look through the brass plumbing fittings. A regular pipe thread fitting will fit the tank nicely, especially if you use some thread sealant or the fuel-specific teflon-style sealing tape. Check posts 43 and 50 in this thread
i'll check on it in the coming days, thanks. i already sealed it but if i get a wild hair in me i might use your advice.
the fork is middle of the line ~1999 royce union downhill mountain bike, a "GXR 1000". if i build another one of these for whatever reason, the university sells tons of abandoned bikes for 10$ each and this will be a good scrap yard for me. i lucked into the front fork... looks a lot like a motorcycle, right?
