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

SB, I have found what you are looking for at a great price…free…send me a PM and let me know where to ship. I used 3/16 plastic hose from the hardware store…its cheap but may need to keep an eye on it and change it when it get stiff. I did order some ¼ hose from a online motorcycle supply that was 5.99 for 3 feet, flat rate 7.00 shipping and no TAX….I did order more stuff…so it was a good deal…

The Next Tank: if you checked out the fitting I used on Pork and Beans gas tank, they are small and hug the tank very well. The problem is you will probably not be able to find them since this type was used on pneumatic controls for HVAC. The pictures shows two sizes, the smaller size was a tee to start off with that I knocked off one end and silver soldered shut then sanded down. The larger one I used on the gas tank…3/16 and did the same thing.
