    Greeting from Ontario,Canada

    I've just finished my first mtrbk.
    I know it is illegal in Ontario to ride it on the road , Is anyone ever ride it and have problem with police or authority in Ontario?
    And I got a bit of noise problem, with my muffler , wondering someone will share how to damp the muffler.

    Howdy Kennuck, welcome.

    Really interesting how you mounted the tank.

    Nice ride Kennuck. You must have moved that filler hole on the tank, very cool. My frame is similar but I mounted my tank on the top bar and I don't have the nice forks like you do. In Vancouver it's legal to ride anywhere although as the popularity increases I suspect the govt will step in to kill the joy.

    Thanks Killercanuck for the links, it is useful.
    The tank mod?
    here's what I did, cut it(carefully) with dremel so the filler pipe still attached, cut new opening with scissors, put tuna can lid to cover old opening and solder it with plumber solder, grind it a bit and repainted.
    I knock some part of the tank to fit the frame, and remove the bottom attached screws. I glue it to the frame.

    Hello there ken and welome to the fourm. Was just wondering where in ontario
    are you located at? I also live in ontario and I live in sudbury. Looks like an interesting solution to mounting the peanut tank in between the two upper frame tubes.

    Welcome to the forum from Colorado. That is definitely a different approach for an inframe tank. Looks good... take care. :)
