more than likely, considering the age of it, that these tanks mounts were replaced because the originals, as is so often the case had stripped threads or some twerp pushed a bolt through the bottom of the tank?

you probably got more chance to find an original in USA than here. That's about 75 quid in £££ so you got nothing to complain about.

A genuine tank in that condition over here will set you back well over £500  possibly near to 1000 the way things are going.

You can't judge by the chrome either as you can get far higher chrome over there than you can here, that tank would cost 500 to chrome here.

But then again you lot over there do like shiny stuff ;)

you will need a good impact driver for the sludge trap plug, and remove any punch marks round the edge.
then you have to get the tube out, have fun.

Talk to me by PM Klaudius, I am a member of the Sunbeam club and can probably help.

The club shop is run by a volunteer, just one man, and often sending bits out of UK can be more trouble than its worth.

Postage to Germany can be quite expensive, its bad enough within the UK.

Hard to get lower standards than Swindon, and Manchester road is the real bottom end

I remember stocking tops................... ;D  I also remember that tights were invented AFTER the mini skirt,  enetrtaing if you were working in  a hole in the pavement in Piccadilly, or going upstairs on the bus......

1960s were great.

Try the Marston Sunbeam link I gave above, 100% Sunbeam, and they would like to see photos.

99% old fluckers on it, but some good cruise deals and holiday advice.

Once upon a time if we didn't talk bikes we talked crumpet.

Speaking of which I got a packet at Tesco today from the reduced price section.

Nice.
