    Build your own TRM Convertible
    with one of my custom designed fiberglass tanks! These tanks are made from the same molds that the RatRodBikes Build Off 11 winner 'ELGIN DECOLUXE' and Build Off 9 winner 'Drag King' was made from. The tanks are designed to convert girl's frame bikes into a unique boy's tank bike without any modifications to the frame.

    ***These tanks are not limited to Spaceliners any more! The list is growing of other girls frames they will fit including Columbia, Rollfast, Schwinn and now Elgin! Let me know if you have another frame that they might fit.***

    You will receive one complete tank fitted together with stainless steel fasteners. The pictures below show the slick gel coat finish in either black or white straight from the molds! The cost is only $189 shipped in the lower 48.

    Either message me here, or email me at SpaceLinerTank@Gmail.com. You can also message me on my TRM Convertible Tanks facebook page HERE.

    Final fitting will require drilling, cutting and/or grinding for the frame openings to properly fit your individual frame.

    Thanks for looking!

    *All tanks sold are in black gel coat unless specified otherwise.

    Thanks! I had been planning to sell these and actually have sold some before the build off finished, but that motivated me even more.:)

    Just a thought , if you know how hard it is to find the 7 tanks for the boys spaceliner, you might have another market.

    There's probably many popular tanks out there that could be reproduced in fiberglass, but if I do any more, they will also be original designs. I like the idea of creating something that hasn't been done before.:)

    I was hoping you'd say that!:dance2: I have 2 Western Flyer X-53 frames that need a tank. I have one tank on a bike. Maybe we could work something out if I send it to you to use for a mold?

    I like the sound of that! I've been looking for an X-53 tank for a long time.

    I could do it if I had enough people commit to buying before starting the molds. Making the initial molds is the most expensive part of the process. It would have to be like when Steve gets enough people committed to t-shirts before the screens are made. I can try to figure out how many it would take to cover the start up if everyone is serious about it. :39:

    Sounds like a good idea!
