Default Re: Firmstrong Urban Man (from BeachBikes) Good bike to motorize?

well those are good things to know so lets get started with your bike, personally I don't care for those peanut gas tanks that come with the kit and on my cruiser I opted for a behind the seat tank made from Pat Dolan at Sportsmanflyer for $150.oo that mounts to a laid back seat post also made by pat , yes the tank is expensive but well worth it in it's functionality and astetic apeal, you can choose to get one from a lawn mower shop or modify a stainless steel water bottle and even a tomatoe juice can as others have done, you can make a gas tank out of just anything including an old fire extinguisher.
I like the Macargi taiti as well, nice bike, but I do recommend doing some research in order that all you p's & q's are lined up when you finally start your build, it fun and every bike has it's challenges as you will learn but its still fun and the challenges make it even funner (LOL)
go to my thread and check the gas tank out and other thing's as well
