Not sure Dai as my bike is in storage at the moment. It's a 1987 RS.

Too late for mine. Yours is the sender-at-the-rear type.

Apologies ..... senior moment. The tank is from my other bike - an 86 K100RS.

With any luck I'll have it back from storage next week. Thanx to all who have responded. cheers

Result .... I got a  tank that is totally dent free and the bonus is that the paint has already been stripped !
cheers cheers
Unfortunately the flanges for the side mounts have been taken off, but as I only need one small tab to mount the front of the Pete Kyte alloy panels I'll simply superglue some tabs on.

Once the parts are all polished I can offer them up and see if it was a good idea or not !!

Yes, I thought so !! The local fab shop wanted £20 to make and weld a couple of tabs on. Rolling Eyes
