Default Re: Pseudo Board Tracker - My New Project

My wife and I went to a swap meet a few weeks ago and came home with two ratty looking frames to motorize. She likes my Nel Lusso enough to want her own bike, and I thought we might find better options at the swap meet than at WM.

She picked up a late '50's Monark frame that fits her well, and I got the guy to throw in a Schwinn Heavy Duty for peanuts. After seeing Venice Motor Bikes 26" BMX-style build, I knew this frame would work and could give me the look I wanted.

I picked up a $20 gas tank with petcock and cap from an old Yamaha DT100 that is just about the right size for this frame. I also found an old Troxel seat that I'll refurbish and should look about right when mounted. In the pictures, the seat and tank are just set on the bike as a quick mockup...
