I would like to slap an old Sportster gas tank to it and maybe try to use a pocket bike engine or a 70cc kit from somewhere.

Lets see....At 100mpg a Sportster Bobber tank holding 2.2gal might get you 220 miles. That's along time in the saddle at < 40mph. :D
Like 5.5 hours. Hahaha!

Welcome to this board. The fun has just started.
You will find help and comfort here.

that bike

is really cool. Your tank is a mustang right? The bike I'm going to use as a platform is a single speed beach cruiser. I was thinking that a Frisco mounted sporty tank would look pretty cool, and then use some upside down handlebars. I want to use a pull start engine for sure.

I agree with you,I think a sporty tank would be sized much better for a cruiser
Yes, I think it is called a mustang tank, I lucked out and scored it for $50 + $17 shipping on e-bay
