just some thoughts for project

Discussion in 'General Questions' started by just for kicks, Jul 7, 2007.

  1. So I have been thinking of a fully suspended bike with a 49cc 2-stroke pit bike engine over the back wheel and thought about using one of these for the fuel tank.(6"x8" or 6"x10")
    I would mount it right behind the seat over the engine.


    Any thoughts other than it is very pricey.

  2. I dont think it's to wide in fact I'm kinda wide myself at 18" or so.

    Soooo, a 6"dia. by 16" long tank would still be less than me (sad sort of, OH WELL :grin:) but the 6" X 12" might be the best choice.
    I guess I could get the engine and see how wide it is and go from there, kind of match it up.

    I do think those spun aluminum tanks look great.

    Cool stuff there! I really like those tanks. I have a couple of small alum gas cylinders that I may turn into tanks someday.
  4. I want to get the under-bar mount tank but I don't know if it would be too big for my frame. I just think the teardrop tank looks like it's trying too hard to be a 'real' motorbike tank.
