    Hey guys, I;m Trae. I'm building a 08 Giant Simple Single with a Chinese 2 stroke 68.5cc needle bearing engine. Been taking my time with the build and figuring out the best way to build my mounts for the big frame and trying to decide on a different tank than the stock one. I would like to get a round tank that mounts on the steer shaft but look like I'll most likely have to make it my self or shell out more than I'm willing to spend.

    Here some pics so far,

    Welcome to MBc looks like you're off to a great start, I like the sprocket mount.
    Whoa though, you might want to resize pics a bit lol.

    Where in AR are you? As you can see, I'm in Pine Bluff and the way people still look at me after almost a year of riding, you'd think I'm the only rider within 100 miles. Good luck on the biuld and let us know how it ends up.
