Did BSA stamp a part number on the petrol tank ....and if so, where might it be located ?.
I have scraped the matte black paint from the tank of my new project, the tank appears to be well made ..unlike some re-pops...it does however have an abundance of Bondo filling dents. My budget does not run to a new tank,or chroming and painting of this one. If it turn out to be an original BSA tank I may be happy to simply paint the whole tank.If it is a re-pop I'll paint anyway ....just won't be as happy frown

Thanks.

James.

Hi James,There is no part #.You can recognize an India
made tank by how the underside was formed.If you can post a photo of the underside it would be easy to tell if it is factory.

Hi Don...thanks for the confirmation, now I need to repair the dents without screwing up the tank ! frown

Thanks again.

James.

These are photo's taken after stripping the matte black paint and about 2 pounds of Bondo !! ....Mr. Ross Thompson has given me an estimate to repair the dents. I will be holding off until my budget has recovered from the other hits !! frown
