Guys,
In a conversation this weekend it was raised that the MAC had a different petrol Tank on the change over from Webb forks to Oleomatic.(1948)
I have never heard this mentioned before. However there are many more out there wiser than me.
Any information?

Regards Mick.

Mick, I don't know about a petrol tank change when the Webbs were replaced with Oleos, but I have seen reference to a change with the oil and petrol tanks on the MAC with the introduction of the rear spring frame in 1953.

I have a '47 MAC (girders) and a '51 MAC (rigid w/ teles) there is no discernible difference in the gas tanks on the two bikes. I used to have a MAC with a pre-war tank that was noticeably different. The KSS/ MSS tank definitely changed when they were converted to oleo forks.

Thanks for your help on this question, it seems that different tanks on the MAC is one of those stories that get around and is unfounded.
