After the purchase of my new Schwinn Point Beach, I decided to cruise Ebay looking for gas tanks, the are SO many unusual tanks! I think I may have found a nice 3/4 gallon tank that will fit right behind the seat. Anyway the build starts next weekend. Transferring everything from the OLD motoschwinn to the new one....

Anything like this??? First Pic is how I recieved it. Second Pic is stripped and primed. I have painted it black, and started the clear coating, just havent d/l pics yet. I watched and watched Ebay for weeks, and the tanks I liked all bid upwards of $40. cause I wanted a round one. I couldnt believe some of the junk that went for mucho dollars. This is about 3/4 gallon, with cap, and straps. .99 cents and $9.99 shipping lol. Now I need a rear rack for mounting.

Mine is in the carry bag.
And will be getting a larger tank as well.

See: "STEATH gas tank" thread for other pic's.

Just something different to throw at you.

I have a 5-star general tank that I'd be willing to sell. It's New-Old-Stock and has never been used. No gas cap either. I bought the last one they had at HandyBikes, but when it showed up I realized I wasn't up to the challenge of figuring out how to mount it on the bike. It will at least need some sort of mount welded to it. Also, schwinn-style beach cruisers might have a problem fitting this tank. It depends on how wide your top tube is, in combination with the two curved tubes under it. I'll take some pictures of it when I get home if anybody is interested.

Asking what I paid for it (have to look it up when I get home), and what it costs to ship to you. I can ship directly with UPS from work, and can quote shipping ahead of time if need be.
