ken, why do you say that? i also have a columbia commuter but seeing as though that does 15mph and this does 40 i thought id rather do this haha

Re: How Do I Do Top Tank Build

I can't believe how gay that seat is.

Re: How Do I Do Top Tank Build

Take the tank and seat off. Weld in a bar across the top (or have somebody weld it for you), mount the tank of your choice, mount the seat you want. It's really not much work, its simply a matter of finding the parts you want and making them work.

Re: How Do I Do Top Tank Build

This is the kind of question that if you have to ask, its probably not a very good idea. Also that seat is FABULOUS!

i understand the concept of how its done. im more looking for if there is any problems,tricks,etc of how to that i may not know. and the seat it very comfy and the storage is great. but i just dont like how long and big it is

Re: How Do I Do Top Tank Build

But gay is the new cool thing. I'd keep it, it'll be worth it.

the bike runs, does 40, and is beautiful. why you wanna go fix something that ain't broke?

there are plenty of moped projects you can score on the cheap to do a top tank with. maybe you will even find a top tank bike. (edited)

Re: How Do I Do Top Tank Build

It is beyond me why ppl feel the need to extend the swingarm on anything but a drag bike. It is good for nothing but fast, hard launches (like faster than any moped could ever dream to go). It will ruin the agility and nimble-ness of your moped. Dont do it

and if youre asking how you dont belong doing it anyway.

i think people extend swingarms on the those hill climbing dirt bikes too so you dont flip over.

but i agree, i actually love the short wheelbase look of mopeds a la criterion road bicycles and more so track bicycles.
