Default Re: Rear Gas Tank Mount Idea

so,i cut up a bunk bed for my buddy,to make it a raised bed,no second bunk.
i had this pile of bent pipes,wondering what to do with them.
i sectioned out two of the bends,welded them to a third one that was on a 20"long pipe
lined it up with the top tube,and elbows turn up and to the right,beside the handlebar stem.cap is from an inflatable boat,chrome plated brass.
it happens to have a 2" diameter base,and after tinning pipe and brass,it joined nicely.

turned a block on the lathe for seat post end to take an engine mount bracket to hold it on to seat post.threaded it for 1/8"npt.
will post pics tomorrow.
it wont hold a lot of gas,but i dont go really far anyway.
