New VT500Ft Fuel Tanks - anybody interested?
« on: June 13, 2016, 02:33:49 PM »
I have recently bought a VT Ascot with a spare tank, unfortunately both tanks are beyond repair, and reading this and other forums it appears that the tanks are extremely rare and prone to rust.

I have approached a company in the UK about making a replica tank in aluminium. The company I have been talking to normally look for a minimum run of 10 tanks in order to tool  up.

I have no idea yet what the cost is going to be, I am waiting for them to get back to me but would anybody else be interested? - no commitment, just trying to gauge if there is any interest in the event they come back and say they need more than 1 order to tool up.  No money would pass through  me, I would just try and co-ordinate us, we would all place our orders directly with the company making the tanks.

The company is Holtworks, check them out at www.holtworks.co.uk

Or should I put an ad in the wanted section for a NOS tank? ;D

Cheers Brian
