Default Re: Reclaimed from the junkyard!

Alright, I fitted the tank... I'll tell this one in pictures!

At first this is what my bike looked like before!

I removed Mr. Peanut, after some fiddling I finally got it in position!

I figure with some fine adjustment, it should be easy to make a bracket for this...

I also think a screw in the top-tube and a tab over the edge of the tank should be solid and not compromise the frame at all...

Until you get to the petcock location... Couldn't be worse, I need to slide the tank back by 1" to get the front mount to work correctly! Spark plug is smack-dab in the middle of where my petcock would be. I can't move the motor around in this frame AT ALL, so that's out! The tank fits farther back on the frame but at that point, it might as well be a seat!

For now... I'm back to Mr. Peanut, I have to ride to work tomorrow!
