In short, I need a tank. The one I have has had multiple repairs, lining, soldering etc. The costs if you can find one, are exorbitant. And second hand so may be in worse condition that the one I currently have.
Splitting the tank open longitudinally, carry out repairs that need to be done on the internal, then welding back up, add liner which will protect against corrosion in the internal side of the weld.?
The problem is, I can't imagine there not being a seam along the surgery.
Mine is a 1985 Model dual shock. I believe that the design was changed after 1981 to accommodate the new electronics.
I was also told that the a) R80 tank is the same & that b) Royal Enfield are making "new" tanks for the older BMW range. I can't find anything on the net regarding b).
