    Nice start you have there. The fork on your bike is, without a doubt, the most difficult fork to get a wheel on or off, without busting your knuckles. See 'restoration tips' post dated august 21, 2016. page #2--Spreading Those Difficult Forks. This fork was introduced in 1938, without the truss rods. They were optional. I hope you have the "rockers" for your fork, as I do not see them on it. I've seen these forks sold at swaps with them missing. They are easy to replicate if you don't have them. Have fun.:)

    That's for the heads up on the fork tips. I do have the rockers they're on the wheel set I'm going to use.

    Great info on this thread! The Tinker is so right on the knucklebusting and provides a good thread to see. WetDogGraphix drawing is the kind of practical information that is invaluable. The encouragement of others is a great boost when someone is under-taking a project. Kudos to all.
    Lets see if we can get to the gist of skipelmore's posting as to what to expect for the price on a tank for his bike. I have some pics of what I believe would be the correct tank for his bike. If it is not the correct tank then it is at least at the same basic style and "level" of his project. This may be a good opportunity for many people to learn some pricing basics and help those who don't know what to expect. Yes, I believe very strongly in doing your homework and skipelmore has begun on his latest assignment by asking questions to the bicycle community. (CABE)
    I don't know how to make the @ thing work but maybe someone could @ for this thread to some of the more active players who could chime in on an approximate price. Let's try. DSCN1205.JPG DSCN1206.JPG DSCN1207.JPG

    Thanks @mynameislegion , I found it and kept because mine was wrong and I see so many others also wrong.
    The @ thing is easy... If you put an @ symbol and and start typing a name this will pop up.....
    @myname or @rus ....and clink on the name/s. It sends a notification to that person.

    Snyder is not really in my wheelhouse but this is a solid, complete tank. I'm thinking $250-300 would be a fair price. @fordmike65 what say ye? V/r Shawn

    Thanks Floyd !! I am still learning!

    I have downloaded your graphic twice and showed it to couple of others who were in need.
