The rear mounting hole of the tank is a pretty big hole and to find a bolt to go through it and the frame, I'd have to drill a hole like 5/8" through my frame. I wasn't doing that. I found a sleeve to resize the hole, but it wouldn't allow the tank to come off the frame if need be, so I had to look for an alternate solution. As it turns out an axle from an old bike wheel and the bearing collar would center the tank hole on the frame. I cut the axle off at the correct length, good end, and welded it to the frame. Couldn't ask for a better result. Bonus pic! The forward tank mount.

That looks good, what size is that tank?

I'm not sure what the capacity is on it, but it's about the same size as a 4 litre jerry can.
