I've hit a snag mounting gas tank to my felt bixby.

It has the triple top tube design, common to cruiser frames, and where the main center tube and the 2 smaller side tubes converge is where my fuel valve exits my tank directly above rigth side tube w/o enough clearance for valve.

Any idea's appreciated

I've been running a brass threaded nipple with no fuel shutoff for a few years now, never had issues. No leaking while sitting, no startup issues. I ride daily so the fuel doesn't go bad in the bowl.
