Hi Ake - I have a Fiberglass tank I removed from a Disco Volante that I'm planning to sell. It was on the bike for years since I bought it and I did ride the bike for years with it on. The fit was correct. I had a steel tank made last year, and replaced it on the Disco. So let me know if you are interested, maybe we can work out a reasonable price. I will send you pictures of it side by side with the Steel one. let me know if I can help!

Interesting, thanks for posting. That steel tank looks like a very exacting reproduction at least on the top. Alex which bike is that going on? I thought you had sold the telescopic fork version. Is the new steel tank going on your Earle's fork bike?

No, the Earl's Fork Disco I have already had the correct steel tank, the one I had made in Italy (shown on the picture), was placed on the telescopic fork one before I sold it.It was an expensive and long process, but the right thing to do before offering it.

Take care!
