Well, build's on hold. Friend has a old lawnmower he's fond of and would like to have it running again. A project and challenge, the shops all say scrap it of course.

Need a tank under the top tube, anything would be better than a penut. Would also balance it out some ................Curt

Check this tank out made of fiberglass http://motorbicycling.com/showthread.php?t=60341&page=2

WTF?!!

Nice work! The triple tree forks are killer, as is your signature motor mount. The rocker rear suspension is sublime( look that up). I agree with Curt. Choose your gas tank carefully. A peanut will get it up and running. I use them on lesser builds, but you have a build that so far that demands something else. Ponder it.

Yeah,tank under the top bar would be nice. I was gonna do a behind the seat, but the bracket would be way long. Peanut is out. I'm not gonna spend 30$. I would rather get a new little torch and make the double paint qt. tank. A fiberglass takes a big initial investment. Buttr I'd be nice to shape my own under the bar tank..um..gonna have to read that thread Curt. The mumble jumble above was my keys stick'n.....�� gotta change to blackwalls tomorrow prolly chage the look for the good.

Check ebay for moped and small M/C tanks. They have gotten pretty $$ but you might find a deal.

Anyway it would be worth using a header, like and elbow. I use that on my Briggs and have room to the side. But check for other interference as in another location the fan shroud (ie Recoil cover) may not allow this without other modifications. My build I also added a custom part to have the carb bowl made level.
