They look interesting but maybe a little too big at 2.4 gallons but $99 is a good price. Sure would dress a bike up though and mounting looks easy enough for almost any frame.
Those are nice tanks and with the deep tunnel it can be lowered over the frame until it looks right. It's taller than the Porkster and narrower. The Porkster is wide and fairly flat with a nice tunnel, not too deep but where you can have a reserve, possibly more than a stock China tank holds

There's some nice used Sporty tanks on eBay right now. I think they can be picked up for $50-60.

That tank has definite possibilities for a dressed up bike.


I just happened to look down at one of my cheap 10 dollar yard sale bike purchases. ''Which I have too many of lying around''. All the spare steel for weird Ideas etc. The bikes do make for great clothes drying racks.

The forks at the crown where I am thinking about removing with a hack saw for their gentle curve I need to make a intake manifold for the proposed 24mm carby. Radius measures at from out side edge to edge 29.20mm another set measures at 28.81mm and another measures at 26.75mm.

1.73mm wall thickness from some scrap frame tubing here. Thinking the steel on the forks will be a little thicker walled?

So tubing thickness involved one of these is very close to a inside diameter of 24mm! I need slight elbow bent section of tubing so to speak to match up to said 24mm carburetor and sit level on the bike.

This set up will inevitable belong to my water cooled Morini in the long run. I still need to watch the climate changes this fall verses the hottest part of the summer to make more observations about fine tuning a large carb. Its looking do able the more I sound it out to my self lol.

That is gonna be cool Skarrd! Could put a good sized diesel in that mug.

Yesterday I lost the retention bolt holding my clutch on the engine drive shaft. So my shoed clutch guts, shot out. I put it back together but might be toast.

I have tried loc-tyte and muffler sealer. They just loosen up eventually. Just one of those things ya gotta watch. Not exactly my long suit. Ya know, paying attention to stuff.

Man, I really enjoy my 4 smokes. The pull up to the pump thing is great, I like the sound and feel. (the so much less vibes)

With all that room you have, could put almost any engine in there. Post lots of pics!
