Proper Tank Bike


It’s not made of exotic leather, and it won’t hold your bike polo mallet, but this is the one beer carrier I would actually buy/build for a bar bike. Now if only it had a cooler…


  1. I got a gimbaled drink holder for my mother’s Rollator. You could put two of them on the bar for a total of six.

  2. The top tube could be filled with liquid gas and when chilled beer is required a pressure release valve could be opened. Cooling by evaporation. hey presto chilled beer. Pure CFC would work best- ha ha

  3. As this is my bike–I thought I’d provide some info–the frame is a 1950 Schwinn straightbar–and there is only enough room for four 12 ouncers–the leather holder on the seat tube actually hold a bottle of my latest preferance–the tank is filled with the official swill of the slow bike movement–Peebers.

    BTW the front hub is a Sturmey Drum–the 62 year old New Departure coaster is sketchy on long downhills @>40 mph.

What do you think?
