This was 2" x 2" angle iron
1/8 thick

Now it's the beginning of my tank mount.
Holes are spaced 3.5" apart.

Found these pics on local CL ad. Looks like the same tank you purchased. I know you are mounting on the rear, but thought I share anyways.

Here's what happens when you GAB on a poll: You ignore the results. Hopefully, someday, we'll see the minibike run.

Default Demand a Recount

Just like the elections in the US, this poll was a farce designed to give the masses the illusion of choice. You all have no input as to what goes on this bike, but you can sleep better at night thinking you do. I recounted Florida's votes. There was an issue with chads. All of Florida's votes were actually for "C".

We are not your pawns. I demand accountability. Let the record show you took the easy route.

Ok, A was ugly! B,C, and Taco Seasoning were all cool. Taco Seasoning wouldn't fit, so B and C were only options. I liked B better than C and chose C because it was simpler to mount.

I concede the point.

But how would I fit my custom 18" seat if I had a gas tank there. Rather be sitting on the front of the seat while waiting at the starting line, instead of sitting on a tank trying to keep the front wheel down.

Plus now I can pick up chicks on my minibike and tell em to hop on the back!

Want to see my refrigerator run?

How come there is no "D" in refrigerator but there's a "D" in FRIDGE?
