While browsing BSA stuff I came across another Indian seller purporting that the picture shown in his listing for a 5 gallon A65 or Goldie is one of his tanks which is an outright lie.
Here is a link to the item; https://www.eBay.com/itm/223378461671?ul_noapp=true

3 or 4 years ago I was researching alternative tanks and the picture our Indian gentleman has used is from an Australian Glass tank manufacturers web site as shown on this link; https://classic-motorcycle-fiberglass.com/gallery/tanks/index.htm

Be careful, there are way too many liars, thieves and cheats out there and they're not just politicians!

Cheers JG
