So I have what I believe is a '51 Columbia and this push button bell tank.
1092198


1092199

and I bought it with intentions / thinking I could duplicate this bike
1092204

BUT with what's inside of my tank won't allow me to even bolt the tank together on my frame so any idea of who owns this bike, what the differences and was there mods to do so ???

So is there a tank made like the last pic I posted for a men's bike ??? I am building a custom project and I kinda don't want a full length original tank nor the prices that come with them

Hopefully you did not pay a lot for the girl's tank. You own it. Maybe do some trimming to fit between the bars. Cut to fit. Then make some brackets / through bolts to hold the halves tightly together. Might be what you want. Might be fun!

$28 so not out much & I will be cutting/modifying to use it since full length tanks seem to be pretty pricey for custom builds. Thanks guys

Sometime is better to make your own fun! Good Luck!
Thanks. I have made a few rough wood pieces to fit a '39 Higgins and since I have creative juices when I am passionate about things I have came up with some bad ass ideas to take a piece of treated lumber & turn it into "custom eye catchers" but I can't show'em off until finished ;)
