                Hipsters do not care about what they own. They slap stickers on it and swap a carb'd v8 ;) lol

                I am doing a complete cafe from this.

                They are amazing, it will be even better once the engine is woke up with that big kit!

                On topic:

                I am VERY excited to start this build. I have been inspired by many before me with amazing frame up builds to convert them into slick legal road blasters.

                My plans are going to be:
                -Custom swing arm to house the 2.75 tires that do not fit currently.
                -Top tube support beam/Puch frame fuel tank delete.
                -Top tube fuel tank
                -Front and rear mechanical disk brakes
                -70cc phbg conversion kit:
                port matching for added flow/power

                End result will be along these lines below:

                  I remember this one. Always wanted a top tank.

                  you should make the frame like this

                      I have a top tank from an old moped, going to see if I can make it work. I belong to both forums. Army is by far the most informative place out there. So much tech in the FAQ section.
                      I want to make the frame more skelton/bare. I have a tubing bender that I bought to build my cage on my e30. I will most likely end up bracing from the seat to the forks. Then removing the Stock Puch tank/frame and make my own. We will see how much has to be hacked up.

                      Stay tuned, this is going to be happening fast. Only thing that was holding me back was the kit. Now that is inbound I can design the frame around the filter placement.

                        so you're gonna attach a crossbar and then mount an external top tank onto that? You should fab it up somehow to where the tank sits totally horizontal to the ground, ive seen so many pictures of maxis top-tanked at an angle, looks really stupid in my opinion. What kit did you order? I've always wanted to build one and read so much in anticipation that I'm somewhat knowledgeable about them, but it turned into motorcycles. Got a 125cc enduro a while back, sold it and then got my first e30. Was a blast, really wanna get another one someday. what pipe are you gonna run?

                          Did you read post #52? There is all the info and a picture of what I am going for. Delete the stock frame tank then fab/mount a top tank.
                          I have a top tank from a Magnum style moped. I will see if it works for my plans, if not I will cut it up and make new sections for a custom tank. Wonderful thing about a welder! Anything with metal can be made.

                          I have this kit paid and inbound right now:
