Model 20 petrol tank fit on a G80S?

Postby 56G80S » Fri May 01, 2020 7:37 pm

I recall a discussion about what petrol tanks will fit what models. I had it in my mind that a postwar twin tank would fit a single but not vice versa.

As my memory is entirely fallible, thought I'd ask the question.

I think that would be the other way round Johnny - the twin engine sits quite low compared to the single so a single tank would fit a twin but the single rocker box would probably foul the bottom of a twin tank.

Thanks a lot for the reply. I thought I'd have a clear out a several years ago when I officially stopped full time work. I also thought we might be skint. Sold the spare petrol tank (there was work needed to fix the mounting holes and I made that clear to the purchaser). Found an AMC g/box which I didn't even remember buying and let it go for £110. Also some other bits and bobs which I wish I hadn't.

There was a tank on Ebay and I couldn't remember which way round the story went!

Thanks again.
