Back to Erik’s original topic, in order to tighten the clamp on the top radiator hose of my 1929 Sports, I have to remove the radiator so:
Start by removing the plugs (easy part).
To remove the radiator bolts must remove the tank.
To remove the tank, remove the seat and rear sub frame as tank is wrapped around the seat downtube.
To remove the rear subframe, remove the battery carrier, rear chainguard, and rear carrier.
To remove the rear carrier, remove the rear number plate….

Reassemble in the reverse order.

I have done this twice now and cannot see a simpler way. Removing the front fork and wheel assembly would be an alternative but just as convoluted.
