Fabricated my my gas tank straps today and bolted down the tank. See the Wasp build for more pictures on how I did it.


Temp cap on the tank to keep junk out of it.

All too true...but I have backup battery lights as well...and after running it tonight with one and then all my lights at once I'm definitely visible...if I can light up the road front and back I should be good...slowly but surely heading towards a battery and fog lights off a jeep...need a 12volt dynamo and use that to charge up and maintain the battery...

I finished up the install on my LA Cycles chopper and rode my first motorized bicycle today. This is going to be fun. It worked out so well that both of my brothers, and my son in law are now going to build one. Now to decide what to do to it next. I'm thinking headlight, speedometer, front disk brakes. Who knows where this will end.

just an idea...

why dont you use an 12V alternator from a small car/motorbike....fab up a chain drive...and bing.....some wires.....lots of juice for lights, sirens, and a phone charger or stereo.

Hey soup,how easy is that? I can get an alternator,lights,turn signals,I even have an air horn kit I could hook up too. I'm already using the air horn,with a ball pump.

Ok so as far as the battery at walmart they sell very small 12v batteries for mopeds that are only about 4"x3"x4"...thats what I'm looking at as a power source...then you could run your lights and everything else...when I can fund this experiment I will...visibility is key for us all...
