Is this the right tank for a 67 Spitfire?
« on: 07 November, 2017, 21:09:03 »
I have the part number but not the knowledge or experience with BSA's. After searching the planet for a tank, i'm gonna have to take a punt on India. This one looks fairly decent given the seller feedback: Is this the right tank for a 67 Spitfire?

If I remember correctly, my spit tank was 5 gallon (imperial).

Thanks for the reply ROYC. Yes, I have read that they changed to 5 gallon tanks in 67 but I've never seen any for sale. I'll keep looking.

That's perfect ROYC, Thanks. I'll contact the Australian one........the Holtworks one is a bit pricey for me.
