Yep! There is a breather valve at top that you could theoretically use as an inlet to a secondary tank.
The whole frame plus the box under the seat. About 2.5 litres. Zoom in to see the petcock and tank cap.
Wow! You're offended because you're not interested! Make an offer or don't buy it!But don't yell at the shopkeeper because you know the fancy-label-priced jeans come off the same factory line as the Walmart ones!Any angrier and you're likely to go smashing windows!

Yep, totally relying on Bill! Thanks!
Anyone know where to get replacement clutch plates to match these? Even the proper name of the part? Not the gears in the pic, just the wearables...More detail on it at my teardown blog, Moped Surgery

Ha! You rock. Thanks!Here's a pic of what my 6 & 7 year old and I did with a bike I found in the garbage... it was a wreck, but found a lot of good retro new-old-stock on eBay! Still gotta finish it (whitewall on rear, some cables, etc.)
Moved my blog to a new name - www.mopedsurgery.com ! (On the recommendation of my 7-year-old.)
Just curious, what make is that grey toolbox? Looks like an old machinists case my Dad has had since before he had me, and I've never seen one like it anywhere else! Mottled grey finish, very 1920's kind of feel to it...
I think 70's-speak for "geek" was "dork"!

It looks more like a mining helmet! But it's a 60's-vintage .... something ...! Complete with a white "gimp" band around it, and proper construction-helmet style suspension inside. Couldn't resist, for the look of it.And ya, my exhaust isn't the only thing sagging! ;->
