Fuel Tanks

PostAuthor: trcart » Fri Jun 23, 2017 3:13 pm

Am undertaking a new project on a 1983 TR1. I was wondering if anyone could suggest, or has pictures of an alternative fuel tank that fits relatively easily? The bike will be a single seater so if anyone could also suggest a rear mudguard that would fit, I would appreciate it.

Any '81 to'83 750 or 920 tank will fit. The difference is in the capacity and the way it fits to the seat. If you are changing the seat, then there isn't any problem.

I have used a mono shock 750 tank and it looks good. The 920 and TR1 tank are ugly in my opinion and don't suit any custom build.
You can use the TR1 rear hugger as a mudguard. After all it fits straight on.

A much different question now.

Your original question asked what “fits relatively easily? “

It would be far easier for you to find and post some pictures, of what you consider to be the best looking. Then ask how or what is needed to make it fit your frame.
