My buddy Curtis and I enter the bicycle portion of the Sacramento Autorama almost every year since 2010. This year we decided to do a TRM convertible tank on a 48 Monark Deluxe. I figured I wouldn't ruffle to many feathers because it was a girlie.

I went through the standard amount of parts switch/mock ups,...lots.

We ended up dropping the skirts. We thought they interrupted the lines.

Now the fun stuff. Curtis is a very talented fabricator, he did all the fab work. He's great to work with. "Hey Curtis lets put a bracket on the chainstay so we don't have to use a strap", "okay".

We cut up a repo horn tank to place under the TRM tank

Removed the bottom support bar for a cleaner look.

I used later model Monark double deep fenders. I wanted the wheels to disappear in the fenders. Curt lengthen the rear using a piece of the stock rear fender. He also removed the indentations for the front fork legs and rear taillight. The taillight is a Persons multi with the lens replaced with a 53 Chevy lens.

Great looking start . What is the chain from ?
The chain is from the bike shop. Pretty cool looking huh? They're commonplace on the custom show bike scene. Used mostly on stretch choppers where you need two chains. Kinda pricey at $60 each.

I think the saddle is a 1930s Persons. I took the cover off a $35 cruiser saddle. It was a single pan saddle so I modified a bottom pan from a dual pan Messinger saddle. That way it was easier to stretch the cover and make it conform.
