Capt,

Flea market is generally for buying and selling used parts. Or at least parts from one member to another. You need some new parts from either a dealer or the many people that sell parts to us. Not everything in the petcocks is available but you can buy the O-ring, the bottom washer w/ the four holes and the filter screen w/ the new integral washer. Those little metal disks and the handle are NLA but all you usually need is the rubber pieces. If you need more it is time to buy a complete petcock, they are available.

Here's the web pages from Hucky's. Call him on the phone because you are going to have to send him a check, he doesn't take credit cards. His name is Hans. He'll help get you started. You might make a list of what else you need because the shipping is a factor so ordering larger lots instead of small lots makes sense.

Hey, you might want to update that. R90's were '74-'76. '72s were at best R75/5's?!

G/S & ST stock tanks...

I have a batch of stock (as in 'NOT' PD) tanks to get out of the shop. I use them as cores to fabricate custom (large/RTW) type fuel tanks. I have way too many projects at this time and want the storage space back. One can only hang so much from the shop ceiling before it starts looking like a 'bad' art project. Now is the time to practice your panel beater skills.

They all have a dent or two and need the interior lined. But they aren't trashed w/ lots of pinholes on the bottom surfaces.

Asking $25/each plus shipping.

Thanks,
Carl

These tanks are designed to fit the G/S-ST models, where the rear attachment piece design is different from the other post-70 airhead models.

Pants. Looks like I missed out here. All of you G/S ST tank hoarders, let me know if you wanna move one on. Doesn't need to be pretty.
