The 1938 Manx Grand Prix bike is nothing exciting to look at yet. Frame is painted and ready, engine, gearbox, and clutch are also ready, the unique hump-backed petrol tank is painted, and the wheels have been rebuilt, but nothing has been assembled into the frame yet. The engine is from 1929 and so blind-head type. The main missing part is the massive oil tank, also unique, and it was a horseshoe shape, each side of the back wheel, and joined by a section that sits behind the magneto platform. I’ve looked at all the available old photos, and I now have to make a solid wood ‘buck’, for a panel-beater/tinsmith to use to make a new tank, unless someone out there knows where the original tank is….?
