SOLD – 1926 1927 Marston Sunbeam vintage motorcycle Flat petrol gas fuel tank with original paint


Off to Italy

This is a decent original steel petrol tank for a mid-twenties Flat-tank Marston Sunbeam motorcycle.

It’s a bit rough here and there but it would suit a bike that needs to look original and unrestored. It still has traces of the original paint and gold lines.

The threads are decent. There has been some unsightly repair to the rear lower edge. It looks like a very old repair. If I was keeping the tank, I’d tidy this up. Apart from the repair, this is a solid old tank.

I have not tested the tank, so it is sold as you see it. I have shown images of the inside of both sides of the tank.

The dimensions of the underside frame fixing points are:

  • Width across the tank (centre to centre) 4 1/2″ at front and back.
  • Distance from front to back fixing points (centre to centre) 16 1/4″

Other approximate dimensions are in a small sketch shown in the images. Please make sure this tank fits your frame as it appears that they differ wildly, especially in length.

Other Sunbeam parts: I have some. Please get in touch.




  • International shipping available. Please ask.
  • Combined shipping available if you buy other parts. 
  • I usually ship to most destinations. If you don’t see a price, please ask. Shipping is in addition to the listed price for the item.

Viewing: Please come and check it over before you buy. It is at PE28, near St Ives in Cambridgeshire.

Collection: If you don’t want it shipped, I have plenty of space. If you can’t collect for a while, it’s not a problem. However, I will need to be paid very soon after the sale. Thanks.

Payment: This site has a facility to pay online. Good old fashioned money on collection is preferred. I can accept payment through PayPal or by bank transfer as well.

Import Taxes: Please note that IMPORT DUTIES are not something I can control. If you are buying from outside the UK, there is a chance that you will have to pay import taxes. Import taxes vary from country to country. If there are charges to pay, it is the buyer’s responsibility to research the cost and pay the duties. The price that you see on my advert is for the item and not the item plus whatever taxes might be due.
