Pre 65 Trials alloy fuel petrol tank pair of pressings BSA C15 B40 Cub Leeds
September 14, 2021 - trials
Pair of petrol tank pressings to make a pre 65 trials fuel tank. Can be cut to make 1 , 1 1/2 or 2 gallon size tanks , you need to fabricate your base from sheet alloy (not supplied), I use to turn up 1/4 gas petrol tap boss’s and bought in the filler cap necks (again not included). 16 gauge deep drawn quality aluminium. Pressed from the original tools from the 1960’s produced for making tanks for Dalesman and Wassell off road bikes. You will need to be a competent alloy welder / fabricator but done properly make a 1st class fuel tank and polish up lovely , I made 1000’s of these when pre 65 trials scene was growing in the 1980’s , a lot were exported and were very popular in the States and Japan , my only problem was finding a welder that could work to my standards so I ended up running this side of the business more or less single handed. I have included some photos of finished tanks but at the time was busy fabricating so regret not taking enough pictures. NOTE:- I took a pair of pressings from my stock at random and degreased them for the photos , the ones you will. With still have the preservative grease on that will require cleaning off when ready to work on. I do have more pressings to list so if you miss this pair I will be relisting , I also have still got the press tools so a potential business opportunity for some one , I will possibly be listing the press tools separately if I. Decide if want to let them go. (incidentally these are extremely heavy units , so not easy to transport). In the day I had them stored at a engineering company that had a press large enough to the handle the tooling. I have now listed these pressings with a post option but I much prefer cash on collection and its easier to talk through the process of making these , if posting they will be boxed and wrapped with care….
