Two posts in one day!
Well, things have changed since my earlier post. In addition to the two straps for my gas tank, the brackets that connect my rear suspension to the frame have rusted through. There are two brackets per tire and one of them on the driver's side has already snapped. Another is on the verge. And the remaining two have holes through, they're that rusted out. (They showed me all this; I'm not just taking their word for it).
