Shift work gets in the way. Fuel tanks should be delivered to my work today. You will see in a few days what I am using for tanks. Scouting eBay for vintage car headlamps too.

Thanks to OldGriffo (from BikeMe forums) for the "tanks".

Bit of sizing up and assessing how to mount them. Also will have to make/source a fuel inlet with a cap. Fuel taps will need to be sources and made too. Tanks will be sprayed satin black from spray can.

Ok this has gone far enough - there is a fine line between genius & insanity - someone go round & straightjacket this loonie

Wow that is a radical shift there - Kinda Texan steampunk!

If you're aiming for steampunk should you not be looking for more brass/copper and recycling vintage parts etc?
