    It's a schwinn legacy

    Yea, just something I noticed. These tanks go way better with a vintage frame.

    Hmmmmm. Probably my least favorite way a TRM tank could be used.

    Of course, you have to have it put together wrong. It wouldn't be a wal e world bike.

    I have been wondering what it'd look like on some of these mixte-style 700C comfort/commuter bikes out now. Kind of like your black build-off bike, but more ready-built.

    If they were only that quick to convert , well at least for you . Probably take me longer to build on the computer then in person . But one things for sure they look good on no matter what bike you put them on .

    Sorry, I missed this some how.
    There's not much to go by with just the frame. It looks like a 20" bike. If you could measure something for the scale I.E. the distance from the seat tube to the head tube etc., I could try fitting one.

    I recently had someone contact me about using a Huffy Nel Lusso. I actually like these frames because of the integrated rack.

    So here's the conclusion:

    I actually laid the tank half on that frame.

    It didn't fit the 24" frame.

    As far as the lusso goes, I'll try it tomorrow. I have a lusso in the attic, and the mock up looks cool.
