Re: New tank inspired by Silverbear and Tinsmith
So it's been 4 weeks since I started doing my tank project.
It's been a learning experience and I really enjoyed putting everything together.
Here are the things I wanted my tank to be:
1) Different than anything I've seen someone build
2) Hold more gas than the 2.5 liter peanut kit tank
3)Something to straddle the top tube and not just sit on top of the tube.
4) Made out of something I had on hand. My budget for bikes is nill.
FINAL THOUGHTS ON THE OUTCOME:
I must say it took more time to build this tank than it did to originally put my bike together when I first built it.
It's a little bigger than I thought it would be, maybe slightly out of scale to my bike.
I don't think it has really artistic lines to it, but it is a "one of a kind"
I proved to myself that I could do it, and it will work..
Despite the fact that the brass looks good, I think it stands out a little too much, and I may paint it..or maybe not
Here it is. Thanks again ... especially Silverbear, and Tinsmith for the
great inspiration . Without your tank build , I would have never started mine.
Thanks for viewing.....
