BA7S gas tank
« on: 17.08. 2017 23:31 »
I just bought a 1953  BA7S? The gas  tank has loop mounts front and rear. No slots. Is this correct??

I reckon so. These tanks were rubber mounted. A far more elegant solution than the bolt through the middle on S/A tanks.

My 51 A7 plunger has holes at front and slots at the rear. The A7 and A10 differ.
