    So a couple years ago I built a 4-stroke bike to cut down on gas on the short drive to school. It had some hiccups and ultimately ended up getting stolen.

    I've finally decided to build again, but this time I wanted to make it perfect so I came here looking for help and ended up getting a lot of great info.

    So far I decided to put a traditional 125cc Kawasaki tank on my Nel Lusso that will be getting a 48cc Grubee skyhawk. I like the way the tank sits into the frame instead of on top of it, and I have a pretty easy method for doing it that I made a tutorial for: http://www.motoredbikes.com/showthread.php?t=34982


    Edit: Sorry for any double posts. I couldn't figure out why the thread wasn't appearing.

    I think you could not fill up for 3 months with that tank. Nice.

    I'm wondering about that. I noticed my 4 stroke sucked gas like crazy at least relative to what the engine was supposed to get because I live in an area with a lot of hills.

    Too bad the Kawi's always come in Lime Green. It takes a few coats of paint to cover that.

    I sanded it off anyway. Took about 30 min with a random orbital and 220 grit. Couldn't get the bottom too well though.
