Re: DIY tank... even if you can't weld
No, I had not known about the engine throwing up on the road and being without your cool ride last summer. But now it is better than ever in it's new incarnation. I'm so glad to hear about the reliability of the Sturmey Archer 3 speed hub. May your Rollfast keep rolling along for many miles to come.
My Elgin will is almost ready to go once I get back to Minnesota and can give it some time. I have the hubs built into wheels, a PK-80 engine with SBP expansion exhaust and this winter purchased shift kit parts used from Cannonball2. He made his own jack shaft which mounts on the seat post and had purchased the freewheel from SBP.I'm very much looking forward to riding the old Elgin with gears. I have to put together a three piece pedal crank, but I don't think that should give much grief.
So good to know your cruiser is cruisin' and now you'll be ale to get back to work on that fantastic taddy.
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
