TY175 Tank

Postby yamfan » Sun Dec 09, 2018 12:54 am

Hi all, I want to remove my TY250A seatpan etc: and fuel tank for something a little slimmer does a TY175 fuel tank fit?
If it does has anyone got a TY175 tank they might want to part with?
Any other suggestions, The S/M tank/seat units would fit the bill but for $800 a little bit rich.

Cheers

Pretty sure the TY175 tank fits onto the TY250 frame but it was years ago I tried it. being a shorter tank, the rear mount on the TY175 tank will be in the wrong place.

Shedworks sells a nice TY250 tank/seat for a lot less than $800

Here's a photo of a nice little TY175/TY250 tank I bought from Classic Trial in the UK a few years ago when they made a batch. Mine was a prototype and is a very tight fit across the front mountings. They don't have any of these currently showing on their website, but would probably be able to make more. It was very good value.

By the time you add 50 Quid postage those tanks would be around the $550 mark ;)
