I am glad to have something to ride. I made my Malagutti a top tank but the tank was still too small. Sooo I found an old Suzuki TC120 tank that holds a gallon more. I like the tank between my legs for more control when I am sliding around corners on dirt roads.
I added the top frame tube for strength so the sideped has a strong mounting point when I weld it on.
I guess I have been riding motorcycles too long and am used to the top tank, and step-thrus look weird to me. (edited)
