A name here too.
And a frame, and a tank.
Still have to finish my current project first though.
@Falstaff Is in! YES!
We'll see how much time I have.
Shark-liner. Just sayin'. That photo....
Good luck brother!
@The Renaissance Man
Is it just me or does this look like the wrong angle all together?
You really need to throw a matched set of tires and wheels on it and stand it up to see how it all works together.
I kinda like it.
Yea, guess I could have zoomed in a bit.
Gotta figure out forks though.
Not sure I like those, and the rat trap hits the tank.
I actually like the fork, the smooth curves mimic the down tube on the frame. It gives the bike a very nimble look!
And being a painted fork, I can see some possibilities for also painting the head tube and maybe the top of the down tube for a cool effect.
What he said!! Quit ya figuring and GTB!! Peace
That tank was made for a Liner frame, or vice a versa! You're making me miss my One-Liner right now. I like the multi-spoked wheels too.
The wheels belong to Janet, I'm just borrowing them til I find my own.
But they do fit the theme I'm going for.
I bet you are TANKED to get this baby rolling!
Got the seat re covered.
Now the big problem is the tank itself.
I bought it second hand, so it was already cut for a different frame; then I re-cut it for a Westport frame. And again for this frame.
So a lot of fiberglass work ahead.
I'm going to mold it to the frame, so it won't be removable.
I'd say it fits your frame pretty well in that photo. Just fill in the gaps around the head tube, and seams with bondo, file smooth, and paint.
Too much molding could become a 'tankless' job.
I'll figure something out.
I had a few small tubs of resin and some fiberglass mat, but can't find it in my garage.
