WANTED:Round (or oval) style gas tank posted by: Chuck Stringer on 12/29/2006 at 9:12:43 PM
Hi,

I'm looking for an older style gas tank for a custom motorized bike project. What I want is the kind that you mount behind the seat like a tool bag.

Thanks,

Chuck

You can usually find an old Cushman Stepthrough tank on e-bay that would probably serve your purpose.

Thanks for the pointer. Do you (or anyone else reading this forum) know of an aftermarker source. I don't really want to spend the cash on an OEM piece that some restorer might need more than I do.

TIA,

Chuck

hi Chuck,
I recently bought such a tank on Ebay.It didn't cost that much,but I did alot of hammering,and lead work to straighten it out.It is only a couple of qts,and very plentyfull.This one was off an old Briggs motor,and only cost about 10 bucks.I have seen several of these in different sizes,and configurations.I have even seen them split into double tanks.1 side gas,and the 2nd side oil.They use any standard lawnmower cap,and the bottom is a standard 1/4 pipe fitting fine thread.I hope this helps Rod

I saw just what you need at a garage sale last week, but I didn't know you needed it then! It was a fuel tank from a very old hand held brush cutter. It was steel, round and was held on with straps like a tool bag would be. Some of the antique chainsaws used this style too. If you wanted something bigger, the old John Deere 110 series lawn mowers used a similar tank, but it held a gallon of gas. That might be too big for what you are thinking. Check with a chainsaw dealer who has been selling for decades and you might find what you are looking for.

Hi,
I have a NOS round cylinder type Briggs and Straton gas tank. They used these on the doodlebug minibikes as well. I have $123 in it and you can purchase for that amount.
Let me know or call 815-409-1799

MOTORIZED BICYCLES:Question posted by: Carla Mudgett on 12/13/2006 at 1:59:58 PM
I have a bike that used to hve a motor on it. I don't know what type of motor though. It says AMF Roadmaster and it's from around the 1970's. It's orange and red. Can you help me figure out what type of motor I need?

          RE:MOTORIZED BICYCLES: Question posted by Rif on 12/24/2006 at 1:45:21 PM
It is an AMF Roadmaster moped. It used a McCullogh 2-stroke engine with *abrasive* drive roller mounted over the rear wheel...
bits and pieces are still available on e-bay. These were not the most reliable machines; they tended to be a bit cantankerous, but fun when they were working well.

MOTORIZED BICYCLES:Hittin' the long, hard road again posted by: Rif Addams on 10/11/2006 at 8:27:18 PM
Hey all,
Rif here; long time no *whatever*...
Well I'm hittin' the road again next summer on my modified *hot rod* Whizzer NE5/'48 Schwinn DX.
Goin' from Tacoma, WA to Portland,IN for the big VMBE meet...
Anyone who has anything contrary or negative to say about this can keep it to themselves.
After that ride in 2003 to New York, I've been itchin' and getting it all together to do it again. NO time schedule, NO pre-planned route, NO B.S.!
This time it's just me and my moto-bike, loaded with my gear, doin 50 *or so* M.P.H. 'cross the land...
I thought some of ya' might find this mildly interesting.

Hey Rif, I'd like to hear more about the 2003 run. The link above on this page doesn't work.
Do you have a site that talks about the trip? You should tell the guys at oldroads to fix that link.

Cool. Thanks, I'll check it out.
The frame work is almost finished; just a few more welds to do, and then smoothing the said welds. After that it's a matter of a couple of bits, welds, and smoothing on the stretched (5" added to the length) pre-war cyclelock springer. From there it's off for powdercoat, along with the fenders, rear rack, etc. and on to rebuilding the Worksman wheels with a drilled out (for the larger spokes) Bendix RedBand 2-speed kickback hub. She's coming along nicely and rather quickly.
