If you want flat-track glass, my favorite is:

First Klass Glass, Jack Warren, 9451 North Belsay Road, Millington, MI 48746,
989-871-2360
He has no internet presence, but comes to most AMA nationals with a sales-truck. A phone call would not hurt. He has a great Trackmaster style vintage dirt track tank that he makes.
It's the one in my avatar.

also there is

Here is the best pic I have of the tank.
The bike is gone, I sold it some time ago.
It has a large central tunnel, actually large enough to fit over an OIF Triumph frame. It uses a central mount just like an OIF and therefore is a bolt-on for that.
For the T100C you would need to make up a mount that would hose-clamp to the top of your frame.
I could describe that mount in detail if you like.
IF your frame has already been modified beyond restoration to original, you could cut off the original front tank mounts.

Hmmm...SBoyd...looks very similar to one I bought off eBay a couple months ago. It was a seat and tank. I'll have a look to see who made it, but mine also fits an OIF.

Yes
I believe that's it.
Hand made by Jack Warren (above)

Presumably ng for a cafe 'cause it only holds 1.5 gallon, but great for flat track.

I just checked the seat and it was indeed made by Jack Warren of First Klass Glass.

That will work. Follow the directions. A very good option.
Caswell seems to hold up to the new fuels. It does so far for me.

Yes woody - i've now used caswell in 3 tanks now with good results - make sure you follow the directions as tanks must be clean and dry -

got an email from Brett today :

This e-mail is my initial attempt at an apology to all of you who may have been trying to contact me recently. During the past few weeks I have been mostly unavailable and away due to a personal family matter that required my attention.

For those of you concerned and or frustrated by my lack of response, I am truly sorry. Those awaiting parts ordered possibly weeks ago will receive a more personal follow up e-mail or phone call as quickly as I can get them out. Most of the previously ordered items are packaged for shipment and will either be delivered or monies refunded as per your request.

For those of you who have been trying to place new orders or trying to contact me with questions or for other reasons, I am here at the shop but may not be able to answer e-mails or phone calls as quickly as we would both like. Please leave a message and I will get back to you as quickly as I can. I've created a pile of work for myself and am working through it as fast as possible.

I'm sorry for this seemingly impersonal group letter, but I felt it was the quickest way to get things rolling again. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

I was just lurking around this new "Specials" spot and noticed this thread. If anyone is interested, I have an NOS (never used) fiber tank that I got off eBay years ago. It is shaped like the lower profile tank in the above photos as I recall. It smelled of strong resin inside as I remember. I think I was going to try something, but gave it up. Anyhow, with today's gas, the fiber tanks have alot to be worried about, at least with street gas in them. If anyone is interested, I'd sell it to a good home..... KC
