Default Re: Pseudo Board Tracker - My New Project

I discovered some damage while stripping the frame and getting it ready for primer... Please see this thread and weigh in!

Picked up a front wheel with a Sturmey 70mm Drum hub from the forums! Just need a rear wheel and shifter hardware. And an engine, or course... We'll see what this weekend's sales bring.

Front tank mounting is finished! Trying not to weld on this project, so it's not very elegant but should work fine. I cut up an old seat post and lashed it to the top tube and the front tube with several wraps of safety wire. It's encased in JB Weld to lock everything in position and protect the wire, but the load is all carried through the wire. Welding would be a much cleaner way to mount it, but I don't have time or supplies this year.

Tank is secured to the cross-post with hose clamps. I was thinking about using a hose clamp at the rear as well, but I've got a more elegant idea to try tonight.
