I'm really glad you labeled the pic to point out that's a tank.  ;)

Hey Irk - Boom, boom .... just got it ! Where I marked "tank" on the  set up frame was so that I could position the mounts once the "tank" was removed.

In reality of course - it's not the tank ! Nor even a "tank cover". My problem is that I'm using the frame to set up as much as possible until my pal gets back mid July and I can then transfer all the parts / measurements over to the red rolling chassis. My main problem as you can see from the pix - is that I can only access one side !

The actual "tank" [ fuel cell ] will be fabricated by that talented builder Uncle Rob of this parish. It's worked out really well at around 2 Imp gallons - the main issue yet to resolve is the path for the filler tube to the top of the frame. I have got the 4" over swingarm and as soon as I find a suitable spindle / bolt I can offer it up and see what space I have for the filler tube.

Ooohhh - that's sweet Rob. Wish I lived a bit closer to you !!!!! ;)

Errrrr - dummy time  ::) ..... I just noticed what I forgot to add to the original sketch !! - any tabs for the mounts !! I had planned for the fuel cell to be carried in the belly fairing, but I guess there needs to be a tab or 2 to bolt it to the GRP ?

The fuel flller neck needs to be inline with the breather and can be 90 degrees to the sloping face. Centres 2" and 2" from the top right hand edge. Sketch with you tomorrow - sorry about that. I'll be proud to have that on my bike. 8)

I had wondered how you planned to mount it TJ.....but sort of assumed you were going to bond it into the belly pan.....same way as I do with the Honda tanks? I quite like doing it that way as it avoids any possibility of a fracture at the mounting points....but happy to stick some on....just say where!
Popping down to Neil Foremans place in a couple of days and will pick up the filler neck....not sure how long you'd like it?

To be honest I hadn't considered the foam option - although I had planned to put some self adhesive foam in there.

That makes sense as I have to mount the belly fairing anyway  ::) ::) ! So, ignore the sketch I sent for the tabs !!!!! What foam did you use ?

I've sent details for the positioning of the filler neck - 1 1/2" long will be fine.

The Classic Silver Aluminium celly arrived today - I haven't given it a thorough mix yet - but it's looking good. The seat base is ready for another coat - so I'll shoot that in the Silver and see if it's somewere near 8)

Sold one of my Eaton blowers - bought this !!!!!  ;D Plenty of capacity to run the blast cabinet, soda blast pot and all the air tools. I'm just clearing a space in my garage for the blast cabinet [ bench model ] and while I'm at it I'll sort some more stuff out to put on E-Bay .... need money ! ;)

I just use an aerosol can of polyurethane foam TJ, I locate the tank in the mould with a couple of dabs of body filler and once its gone off squirt the foam in....and always use less than I think I need....it expands a lot!

many thanx Rob.

After YEARS of searching I finally found the rubber section I used back in the day ! ;D. Nicely finishes the edge off.

Tank will be in primer tomorrow [ again ! ] ready for the Classic Silver Aluminium.

Haven't finalised the fixings [ over centre clips ] as they will be mainly cosmetic. I'll get it sorted before the tank has the top coat.

I'm also leaning towards a broad [ 2" ? ] Red stripe down the centre of the tank / seat with traditional Red / Black pinstriping.

If you haven't seen it before have a look at Car Builder Solutions site TJ....run by Neil Foreman (Ferrari P4 and Can Am replica guy) and his sons.....lots of good bike bits....including that rubber strip! They're local to me so I get down to their shop quite often, everything they sell is decent quality, they build cars and bikes themselves rather than just selling things and they're currently setting up a new site....Bike Builder Solutions!
