petrol tank or laptop, more coffee.

Sitting here looking at the tank off my Ariel, well I should be looking at it but I bought a laptop out here and
I am watching youtube videos of finland blokes blowing stuff up.
I was going to put some miles on the fat old lady this month, pulled the cover off it and got
hit by the smell of petrol, she's incontinent. Tank is rusted all over not a spot of clean metal, well there
are sparkles of what I guess is solder on the video of the inside of the tank, great video honest.


Wish I had a chop I could just slap a coffin tank together from a bit of old transit roof.

None of the above. It's a VB.

I never liked VBs, maybe it's the light shit coloured saddles they used to have.


Bunty has just been told she's getting spit roasted.

Not all of them. A 1950 model had a separate rear seat and the rider's seat was sprung, unlike the rear frame. Can't post a pic as it's on my 'puter, not a photo hosting site.
Your pic is a later one with rear suspension.

Mines a 1956, same as the one in the pic.
Rigid or plunger are better looking, shorter and probably lighter but I paid batman money.
