I think I know where this is going... ;)
Yep, I've had this idea on the shelf for almost two years now. Nothing like a build off to get the momentum going. A new tank is the sole reason for doing this. The rest of the bike will probably not change very much except for the fork and seat. I wish it had came with a blue seat, just don't think the flower pattern is going to make the cut!
Your going to play that game again ? First one to start , last to finish and then take first ?
I sure hope not! Well the last part would be nice but certainly not the last to finish part!
I think she's a Fairlady!
Not for long. :21:

Holy frijole, a 20" convertible tank. This is HUGE. Imagine all the pristine girls' bikes out there that can be saved instead of cannibalized for roached-out boys' frames...

Hadn't considered a shift console. :39:
Because you're not a muscle bike guy... yet! :D

Here's a thought: You've got the other tanks. What if I wanted to build a 24" or 26" bike with a shift console from a girl's frame? Could you design some sort of removable... or at least cutable... panel, where you could drop a TRM Console (patent pending) into the TRM tank?

Just thinking out loud.

That's a good idea.
I created a shifter for Quoise last year but it was too complicated to reproduce for public consumption. The internals would be the hard part. I would need to either make a simple shift mechanism or find an existing generic shifter that I could modify easily.

I'm open to suggestions on a cheap shifter @CRASH .:happy:

The rough cut tank halves are finally started. As usual I'm using HDU to make the plug.

The first thing to do is make it fit over the frame. There's much more left to carve but this is a good start to show me where to cut.
