Hi Guys


Have a Bantam D1 petrol tank that I am restoring

Some one has cut off the two front mounting tabs

Is there anywhere I can find out size and shape and dimensions of these tabs so I can make and weld back on

where are you?it may be easier to take a card template off another complete tank.This method would give you a chance to  measure the location on the tank .If some one can confirm e tangs are the same on an early D7 I will cut you some:;** Please log in to view ** good photo to get you going.

This is the tab on my 1955 D1.  Where the tab joins the tank (the curved join in the photo) it measures approx. 65mm around the curve.  The centre of the bolt hole to the tank is approx. 25mm.  I don't know if that will help much as you need info on where it is welded to the tank.  Let me know if you need any more photos.  Cheers.  Bruce.
