Default Re: Tinsmith's in frame gas tank for cantilever Schwinn.

Dan finishes the last of the soldering and gives the tank a good look over to see that the soldered joints look sound and leak proof. At the machine shop where he works he made up a couple of steel fasteners to attach the tank to the two frame members under the tank. These will be a pattern for others to be made of hard plastic or similar which can be more easily worked by hand. The fit is perfect. A job well done, my friend!

Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
