    PC140471.JPG PC150475.JPG So I just aquired this yesterday for $40! 1951 Monarch Rocket that I will be building a tribute board track racer. I am replacing the sprocket to a 25 tooth so the motor fits. I think I will have some nuts welded onto the forks so I can install caliper brakes. The forks have no room to drill holes. Maybe put some flatstock sheet metal to cover rear rack that seat is on. The gas tank is made outta a premix fuel can ya get at the hardware store. I already sanded and tapped the petcock and seems to be holding. The tank sits to one side with rubber straps so it's easy to remove and fill. I'll keep ya all updated.....
