Hi Jase,

if you had payed with Paypal you can get your refound with no problem. Contakt ebay and they will sort it out.
I have ordered 2 years ago parts from India they have never send, and I get my money back from Paypal.

cheers Klaus


If you think, everything is under control, you are not fast enought.

Hi Klaus
I eventually got a refund from the seller, then a week later one came up on eBay in this country, just waiting for it to arrive.
Cheers

After failing to dodge a Dodge making a sudden dodgy right hand turn in right in front of me  *eek*, I now need to fix my 1952 A7 Star Twin. And my left thumb, bruises etc etc.
Can anyone recommend a good supplier of a replacement tank, from India or elsewhere. Someone who got what they ordered and liked it.
And the fork shrouds that hold the headlight & mudguard stays (I think we can straighten the mudguard).
Thanks, Steve

Bad luck. I'm glad to hear you didn't suffer anything too serious.

Had my tank for four years now. I had to run a tap through the tap holes, other than that over the moon with it.

Is the tank unrepairable, Steve?

its a great looking bike roy. i bought a petrol tank a few years ago from india and it was a perfect fit and finish. its a shame the authorities prevent them being made here in uk. business rates , high rent etc.

This is really good advice as I'm looking for a tank now. One thing has hit home is there is a big difference in price on ones that look the same.

Makes sense that you get what you pay for.. Pummys are more expensive now I've found him on tbay but not a problem if there superior. Has anyone any recommendations or thoughts on a ally tank you don't need to worry about the chrome or paint then? I'm struggling to chose what tank I want as its a bit of a mixture on my bike build as it is, with a B frame and A10 engine.

 Dave  You may be better sourcing an Indian Tank from a UK based supplier. The small print on some of the Delhi based websites hints at import duties and other taxes which may bang your bargain into the not such a bargain price range. If the tank is a poor example, more chance of sorting the problem with a UK source.

 How did other folks get on? Not well in some cases reading previous posts.

Hi Swarfy,
You cold be right and I've seen the import tax on them but thought their maybe a loop hole. I'm not really that keen on getting one from overseas hence why I'm still looking. Now I know people have had tanks not even sent is a worry! I will have a good think, as concentrating on lots of other jobs at the moment. I've got a bare metal original tank from a A65 as a last resort for now, while I keep looking and save up.

My Gold Star tank finally arrived from Royalwotsit in India, It has taken many weeks and lots of false dates and promises.  After chasing them up againl they said a week last Monday they would ship it.  to my amazement it arrived on Friday. Air frieght Delhi to Frankfurt, Frankfurt to East Midlands Airport and a local delivery service to Sutton on Sea. Sent by DHL.  I looks very good but not fitted taps etc yet. We will see how good it is in time.  £245 including tank cap, badges and taps.
