Thanks for the info!I've built two, and while challenging to get all the parts, with some imagination and money they look pretty good. They are replicas of a Schwinn panther frame. The gas tanks are perfect but the straps and threaded strap bungs are cheap and weak. You will need your own straps and drill the tank. Too bad they don't fix this .

My other one in the boardtrack thread is called
Good luck if you decide to get one
I’ve seen the stainless steel tanks on eBay for $199 and the same aluminum frame and tank set sold by Gasbike, but for $239. I found the tool box also, but I haven’t seen the drop loop or Merkel frames.I have never done business with Gasbike but an alter ego and the same tank and frame is available on ebay also.
Same Chinese company makes them... they have some other styles out now including a drop loop frame knock off and a flying merkel type.
I got the tool box off ebay also. I have never drilled stainless steel as hard and tough as they use in that tank..takes a full 30 min per hole using cobalt new drill bits... needed two for the top strap that they dont include either. It needs a top bracket strap also or the tank just wobbles side to side. As I said there tank brackets do not
fit at all the frame that comes with them. Weird thinking on their part.
The alloy frame is so light its scary.
Thanks! I’m running color schemes around in my mind and have no idea what I’m going to do yet. A friend suggested leaving it bare metal and waxing it. If I went that route, I’d use black accents and maybe white wall tires.
