Original steel BSA Flat tank motorcycle gas / petrol / fuel tank.

However you would like to describe it, it’s a flat tank for an early BSA. Not sure which model, but here are the approximate dimensions:

I’m no expert on early BSA’s but I’d have a guess that this is for a bike from the late 1920’s as the front is more curved than the earlier models. In fact, I’d go as far as say that I think it would suit a 1926 Model S26 Side Valve 557cc 4 1/2hp because the shape at the front matches and the oiler is on the left / front.

Overall length:25 3/4″

Width: At front, 8″, at rear 7 1/4″

Height (Just the tank and not the caps): 4 1/2″

Distance (C-to-C) between front mount holes: 3 1/4″

Distance (C-to-C) between rear mount holes: 3 1/4″

Distance (C-to-C) between front & rear mount holes: 40.1mm

Distance (C-to-C) between front and centre mount holes: 21.2mm

The tank is in decent condition. As you can see from the images, it has a ding on the left/ rear upper edge (as you sit on the bike). It also has two very small dings on the other side just near the cap. There are some other dings so please see the images. There are no obvious repairs and seemingly no evidence of past leaks. I’ve left it with patina, rather than remove all evidence of its past.

It comes with the single cap as you see in the images. It’s nice and oily inside.

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

Shipping: I usually ship to most destinations. If you don’t see a price, please ask. Thanks. International shipping available.

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: Good old fashioned money on collection is preferred. I can accept payment through PayPal or by bank transfer as well.

Import Taxes for international shipping: 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.
