Has anyone got an American market petrol tank that they would like to sell, that doesn't leak, for a 1971/2 BSA A65?

Many thanks

I've got one that is used as a door stop, doesn't leak but has liner in it. Horrible looking piece of crap that they are.
You can have it for $10 + post

Off topic but if you have time next week (and if you aren’t already booked in to go) make your way over to the BSA rally at Moreton in Marsh. It would be good to meet up.

Sorry, i 've taken a while, thought you'd pm me.


Post is silly money these days, probably around $100 at least.
I'll get an idea from the post office when i'm in there this week.
I'll get a couple of photo's too, and pm. As i remember, it's as ugly, impractical and horrible as all those jap copy 71-72 beezer tanks.

One man's pleasure is another man's poison! According to the tracking information, the tank arrived in Coventry GB last night at 6.52pm. That's good going from Australia smile
