Default Re: First build log book.

Well I have been trying to find a way to make the bike more of a BTR, but with the old gas tank being under the rear rack, it made the seat sit too high and forward, therefor the down slope handlebars were extremely uncomfortable.

So since I can't weld i decided to find a different way to mount a gas tank, as opposed to an in-frame one. Here's the "final" sample. This is a 60's VW washer fluid tank, which I'll be mounting to the fork center bolt.

I painted a metallic brass and I think it gives the bike a cool look. I will probably find a cleaner one that I can maybe keep the original color, since this one was super dirty and scuffed. I'll pot better pics of the mounting and fuel line routing, but it's like 20 degrees outside and I hate the cold weather haha.

Hope you guys like it!!!
