As soon as I got her home, I did this. Nothing set in stone, I just wanted to play. It's only mocked up as I don't have all the fasteners and what-have-you. At least it's easier to push around now. With the flat air shocks the rear tire was rubbing the fender and it was a chore to move around. It's also about two and a half inches taller now. Of course, tall isn't necessarily the goal but I'm just about six feet tall and I want to be able to actually ride the thing. I received the other tank last night and another key part my dad happened to have. I was thinking bolt on hardtail initially. Unfortunately, to make them look nice you need to do a little cutting of the frame. This 69' frame is pretty much unmolested so I don't think I want to cut it up. Or chop it, if you will.
The good news is I have options. Now to see if I can make it run. I'll need a tank with actual fuel in it, two matching shocks, and perhaps some bars. O.K. fine, I can get by with these bars for now.
