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

Yes, we have been having a good time with these tanks and with getting to know each other. It's great to have friends to share your interest in motorbicyling.
And yes, it is true that an old dog can learn new tricks so long as a treat is involved And these tanks have been a treat!
Below are photos of Dan's copper tank sitting in the 53 Schwinn frame. Behind it is the 51 with the prototype tank in service. The site gauge fittings ended up so close together that I turned them and made the line go in an arc. Not the optimum position, but it will work. Next post has more photos showing the tank I made.

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