spitfire tank
« on: 04.05. 2009 22:57 »
Hi
Im building a Spitfire Scrambler look a like and need a fuel tank, from pics I see that the tank is smaller and less bulbous at the rear than a standard tank, as Im only after the look rather than a replica would any of the easier to obtain tanks ie. B31 type be poss to fit with mods , I can weld and fabricate to a degree.
Any other ideas welcome.

Cheers Spyke

Hi Spyke

Not sure if your in England, I have a spitfire tank for sale, round badge type, will need re-chrome if you wish, all threads are good, no internal rust, no dents and has not been repaired at any time.

Can send you photos if you wish.

I Purchased on Ebay then picked one up completly finshed.

Hi Nick,

If you still have the Spitfire Scrambler tank for sale, I'd be interested in buying it from you. Have you any photos you could send me?
