    this is my new project bike that will definetely be getting a motor. Its a 1950 schwinn straight bar. Ill be blasting it and powder coating, adding dropout extensions, chopping the seat tube off the top and adding a new mount in the triangle behind the seat tube. I know ive seen custom tanks in these bikes before, so who ever makes them please let me know and add pics! Im also thinking of putting the worksman toolbox/oiltank from pirates on this frame, does anybody know if it'll fit?

    I think I know where this bike is going, and I'm going to follow it. I can't help you much with the tanks, but there'll be some member chiming in soon. I don't doubt it. And there are a handful whose custom tanks I've seen pictures of, and heard tell about. I think you'll get some kind of help before too long. I can't wait to see how this one turns out.

    A rear rack/tank might help you out.
