Default Re: Rear Disk brake + frame tank

This is a first time for posting a picture so lets see.

if this does work you will see a polished brass fuel fill on the top of the crossbar. the petcock will be found in the obvious back part of the crossbar just in front of seat post.

As i have mentioned before the fuel does go down the back fork and the down tube.
So the options that i can see are:

- Plug the 2 little holes were it comes out in the back fork along with the front engine mount which it seeps threw. (fuel that is)
-block the the welds were they join ? not sure of a substance that would be fuel proof.
-displace- ie fill the tubes with something so that the fuel does not have anywhere to go.

quick question as i haven't yet rode one of these bikes. Is the vibration going to foam the fuel if it is in the frame tank ?.

the pic below is about a 2 weeks old so the build is a lot further along.
Many thanks
