    image.jpg 65 typhoon. Og paint, crank, sprocket, pedals, chain guard, s-7's. Picked up the forks, handlebars, grips and fender braces at Memory Lane. Fenders are unknown make, definitely not schwinn - bought those and the seat from a guy that sells bikes out of his garage a couple towns over. eBay tires and fork darts. This is it so far... on the lookout for a tank, headlight/ taillight, a more comfortable seat, clean crank and pedals.

    I need to figure out a way to mount it on my forks above the fender though...

    I have used some heavy duty copper or aluminium wire and bent it so it fits between the struts on a bike. Might be able to do something similar on your forks.

    Looks good, the tank adds a ton. Very classic rat rod!
