Default Re: First build - '72 Indian Racer

The tank is an Indian MX tank from the 70's. I got it on ebay for $60, and spent another $300 or so on having it restored, and an NOS cap & petcock for it.

It is amazing how nicely this tank fits onto a Micargi Stealth frame. The only modification I made to the frame was adding two rubber grommets to the right & left sides of the top frame tube near the neck in order to recive the U-shaped stock grabbers on the inner walls of the bottom of the tank.

I used soft sticky-back velcro to cushion the top frame tube where the back of the tank rests. It is just the right thickness to provide protection for the tank, without looking bulky or messing up the perfectly snug fit that these tanks have when matched over the fat oval shape of the Stealth frame tubing.

I believe this tank is well over a gallon & definitely has room for battery power. The right and left compartment hold fuel as one chamber.

Hope this helps & thanks for the kind words!
