Wanted......W/NG fuel tank please

Post by Adz.F »

Does anyone have a WNG petrol tank for sale in the UK at all please?

The bike is 98% finished now, so close to being on the road! I have a tank but the side is heavily pitted through and both undersides need replacing.

Many thanks in advance.

Thanks Nev, I will certainly consider an Indian one. I have had 2 for other bikes, the AMC one fitted perfect but the Norton one was horrendous, both from the same firm so a flip of the coin as to what you get.

Will hold out for a little longer and keep my fingers crossed 🤞 but in the end if it gets it on the road it would be worth a chance.

Cheers

There's one on this site above. Red and chrome. Same as W/NG shape. Also fits VCH. Nev

You could always have your present tank repaired, a task which is somewhat easier on a W/NG than on a bike which has to have the tank chrome plated. Try Compound Curvatures in Nottingham https://www.themgk3.co.uk/contact-us/ They are brilliant and sensibly priced. I have had several tanks repaired by them over the years and can thoroughly recommend them.

Thank you guys, I have been contacted by a member who possibly has a tank for me so fingers crossed.

I will have a think about the Indian tank in the for sale section, it would need a little work to make it look correct but could solve getting it on the road in the short term.

I will also contact the tank repair guys and get an outline quote.

Thank you again

Best regards

The Indian tank in the 4sale section is not like a WNG tank.
It's for a 500 model and is longer at the sadlle nose.
