New BSA Fuel/Oil Tank

  Hi all, and Happy Monday! I've been out of town for the last week, as my university had a spring holiday. In that span of time, lots of new updates on the BSA. As previously mentioned, the motor, gearbox, and frame updates and repairs have been completed. When the original petrol/oil tank was removed it was discovered that the mounting points were completely savaged and would be unable to make the 3,800 mile trip without failure. Rather than attempt to repair the tank, the masters at Vintage and Veteran, LLP commissioned a brand new fuel/oil tank to be built. Yet another example of them going above and beyond. I posted some pictures a few weeks back of the new tank being temporarily fitted to the frame before going off to paint. As of last week, it returned with a beautiful new paint job and has been re-fitted to the bike. Check out the pictures below, from start to finish.

Almost looks naked, doesn't it?
Beautiful new paint job
Gently placed in its new home (Note: New horn and battery for LED Lights are visible)

Truly a thing of beauty

  1. Hello! Keep it up! Thank you so much for sharing some important information about this one. You have such a very interesting and informative page.I'll be looking forward to visit this page again and to your other posts as well.
    In all cases the owners may also provide "hospitality" or "pick up rights" at the facility to other companies.
    At Spencer Bros., we want your oil tank installation to be worry-free. That's why we use reliable oil tanks made by reliable manufacturers. We don't recommend using the box store oil tanks, because they're not rated as tough as ours. They're more likely to corrode and start leaking, and may only last for 10 years or so. We use tanks that will last for decades, so you can be sure the oil tank we installed today will be working for your grandchildren for years.
