I just picked up a Felt 1903 and plan on it being my next project.I would like to put a behind the seat gas tank.Has anyone any suggestions or things to look out for,pictures,motor mount ,etc. Any info would be appreciated.Thanks ahead of time.
EVERYONE of my bikes are parked inside my apartment since I do not need to have them ripped off from under the outside staircase even if they are locked up.....why take the chance?...Thieves WILL find a way.......
The first china engine I ever saw was mounted to a Felt 1903. In fact, the guy had two, another was mouned to a Felt Chief. He also used a behind the seat tank. He built his out of a piece of 3" or 4" copper pipe with caps and polished everything . He also used copper for the fuel lines. Very sharp bike.
Hi Vince, I'm there NOW! '1903'/ HS GrubeeG4 and I'm making the tank mount from Black Walnut. Should be done within the week. Over on motoredbikes.com in the picture gallery section there's a gorgeous Felt 'Red Baron' by 'Give me V-tec'. His more recent pics show a tank mounted on metal hardware behind the seat that might give you some ideas. His earlier pics show a tank mounted on a rear carrier. BTW, I got my 1.25 qt. tank from small engine warehouse.com here in Muncie. Hope this helps.
