Look Ma, No Hands!
Just acquired a late 40's or early 50's roadmaster frame and i'd like to add a tank, but being a newbie to this kind of bike, i have no idea where to begin. i'm sure that tanks aren't universal, and tanks for the same brand and model must differ from year to year. in examining images of bikes with tanks, some frames have a downturned mid tube (not sure of the nomenclature) as they connect to the seat tube, but mine doesn't so i'm assuming that will affect how a tank will fit. anyone want to chip in some tank knowledge or send me in the right direction?

Not 1940’s, maybe late-1950’s by the way. Some might call it a tall-tank model or an AMF straight tube (but which tube?).
Also note how the seat stays are straight, (compared to some pictures).

this frame will be a ratrod project, and not intended for a close to original build, and after looking at the tanks that will fit this frame, it's not the look i have in mind. the frame seller claimed late 40's or early 50's, and i don't have enough knowledge to tell!
