General

The fuel tanks are of welded steel construction.

Fuel tanks are treated to resist rusting. However, when motorcycle stands unoperated for any length of time (e.g. over Winter), tanks should be drained and the tank interior bathed with an oil fuel mixture of equal proportions. The fuel will evaporate leaving a protective oil film on tank walls. Moisture formation and subsequent damage may also be avoided by using only "good grade" anti-knock ethyl fuels with moisture absorbing additives.

Tank leaks may be arc welded, gas welded or soldered. However, only firms or persons qualified to make such repairs should be entrusted with the operation.

WARNING — If ALL traces of fuel are not purged, an open flame repair may result in a tank explosion. Extreme caution in all tank repair is recommended.
