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

Dan and I have been talking for some time about making a shroud for the EZM Q'matic transmission. He has one, too, for the 4 stroke Worksman build he's in the middle of. Neither of us is crazy about the plastic shroud that comes with it. We made the prototype yesterday and like how it turned out. The electroplate tin looks really good, I think, and one in polished copper would be awesome to go with a copper gas tank. This gas tank, by the way, is the prototype and is just the way it was when we finished making it. No polish or wax or clear coat. Just dirt and spilled gasoline, but still looks good. One of these days I need to clean up the whole bike. Pretty grungy looking up close, but looks nice from a distance!

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