derbi tank mounts and fixes

10Feb10

nothing too excited, but some more steady progress made. after precision eyeballing and precarious tack welding the yz80 frame has been retrofitted with tank mounts.

tank mount

after a few layers of electrical tape they fit real snug. after getting the tank mounted i ran into a problem. the monsterous hydro fork tubes were hitting the tank when fully turned. in the sake of protecting the laguna sport tank i did what any bandit minded builder would do, weld shit to a bike.

before, TOO MUCH TURN
fork tubes hitting the tank

OK ALL BETTER
FIXED

the added bonus of using a cut down bolt is being able to grind away more material if the turning radius is abysmal. there’s a bunch of work going down on some rad bikes. wads is turning a vespino (imported spanish vespa he got from zack) into a top tank and nate is digging into his C2LKS. SRS BANDIT BIDNASS.
