Fellow BritBike member KC in SB had a nice A65 tank for sale a few months ago. Contact him and see if he still has it. Here's his profile link:

Hi Allan,

I rang Colin in the first place and asked him if he would be able to take on the job of re-chroming and painting the tank and side panels. I told him that one of the side panels had some damage to it and he said he would be able to repair it.

After i had sent the parts to him he rang me and said that the damage was beyond what he could repair but he could get hold of a new pair of side panels and paint them. I agreed to this and he supplied the new side panels (he charged me an extra £50 for them) and returned the old ones back to me with the other parts.

I am hoping to repair the old ones myself and get them re-painted at some point in the future. They were original BSA panels and I would like to fit them back on to the bike.

I have another frame and swinging arm and quite a lot of parts, so I am hoping to get another engine and other bits to put another bike together in the future.

I contacted him, but the tank is gone.
The search goes on.

That's too bad. Another one will turn up sooner or later.
