Can any one tell me the dimensions of the petrol tank on a 700s, so that I can iether make one or modify one of somthing else. cheers Eric
I read in Yowl that George Silk rejoined the SOC. Maybe you should ask the man himself ;o) Maybe you could persuade him to copy some drawings or something (if there are any left).

Hope he can help you.
If Don still has any drawings, it might be sensible to get them copied and lodged with Spares Scheme.

There are several tank makers who advertise in OBM but some years ago I had mine made at Spondon Engineering in aluminium and a good job it was too

You might remember that Bob made all the Silk Scott and Silk frames as it was a design for Yamaha engines that was stretched.
Who Knows, he might still have the jig if anyone wants a new one.
