I have a 71 roadster fuel tank that will be used on an offroad / desert racer. Like the early OIF Triumphs, it does not have the strap that stabilizes the front of the tank. Is this tank susceptible to fracturing like the Triumph tanks? Probably not hard to weld some bungs into it at this point if it's likely to break......
Thanks

Hey Mike...the one I have isn't tapped for the brace so I would guess none of them were. Seems odd as they have a reputation for splitting. The home market ones have the brace. And need it. I probably won't use the export tank so will never know how it holds up. it's possibly the only BSA thing I own I would sell.

Too much moderation is bad for you.
