any ideas for mounting the tank on this kinda of frame?

I was going to use that Micargi bike frame for my project. I was going to cut off the side panels of the "tank" and weld on a real tank. You could just make a new mounting strap for the tacky looking tank that comes with the kit. You most likely will need to drill and tap the frame to hold a screw.

I decided on the Micargi Bronco frame that will be modded to look like this: http://i268.photobucket.com/albums/jj9/satoch/Bike12.jpg

How about one of these mounted behind the seat post?

That's brilliant! It could even be wrapped in leather to appear like a tool pouch thus preserving the "bicycle" look.

My concern is height above the carb. These engines are gravity fed and do not have a fuel pump correct?

It was Old Pete who originally posted the link to Tour Tanks. A veritable fountain of good info (Old Pete) in my opinion.
