Default Re: Fiberglass Gas Tanks

I dislike the look of a peanut gas tank on top of the top bar on nearly any style of has always looked like an afterthought to me...and I'm old enough to remember original Whizzers, too.

As I get into my '53 Schwinn Phantom Whizzer buildup, I'll be pulling molds from the Phantom tank, in order to to make it functional as a gas tank. It'll be slightly wider than stock, two separate sealed pieces, bolted together, with balance tubes at bottom.

Yes, I've done lots of fiberglass work, and I teach advanced prototype building at university level. The only issue is finding time for all this fun!
