Nearly forgot the King of Cool !!!!  ::) ::)

Just sold it last week - even that had a diesel - albeit a 2.2 Merc lump.

The electrics undertray - so skillfully crafted [ ::) ?? ] is now redundant as I need the space for the fuel cell. We'll make patterns up and see what capacity we get, but it looks like around 3 gallons [ imp ]. The electrics and other squitter will now live under the dummy Manx tank. Repositioning the fuel cell means I'll be able to site the Brass Monza filler Goldie oil tank style up through the front of the seat. The Monza cap is another of those items that just HAS to be used - and of course, needs to be seen. 8)

And maybe not . ;D................... the rear wheel is out now so we have better access to that area under the electrics tray.

Looks like we might be able to squeeze 2.5 - 3 gallon [ imperial ] fuel cell in there AND retain the electrics tray.

Cardboard and gaffer tape at the ready.

When we measured up - yes we can get almost 3 gall [ imp ] capacity under the electrics tray.

I got 3 quotes from UK based companies to make the tank measuring 8.5" x 8.5" x 10" with all the relevant fittings, filler etc.
Quotes were 135.00, 145.00 and an eye watering 175 !!!!!! :o

Then Chinabay [ where else ] came to the rescue - off the shelf polished alloy tank with ALL the fittings 8.25" x 8.5" x 10" [ 2.5 imp. gallons ]  - 56 DELIVERED. Ordered today [ 19th. Jan ], be interesting to see when it arrives.
