    Looks really cool, you did a nice job. Rat bikes are alway low maintenance, no paint worry either

    Pull start and centrifugal clutch are awesome.

    But the gas tank. That's what I want to know more about. What's it made from?

    Appreciate it. Actually found it on eBay, must have been on some small engine at one point.

    You right about that, never have to wash it or worry about it falling over and getting scuffed up.

    Did you modify the rear seat stays? they look like 3/4" tubes not 5/8"

    Nah, just stripped the paint off, well most of it, and left it outside for a couple weeks before starting.

    Really dont know. Bought it with a bunch of other stuff. He had painted it maroon. When i stripped it, it was black and yellow underneath. Actually, i did more research and I think its a Schwinn Heavy Duti frame. pulled one up on google and its the exact same fork. Theyre black and yellow also. He told me it was a Worksman, but looks more like the Heavy Duti.
