Title: Tank Identification
Post by: Rookster on July 19, 2021, 01:30:25 pm
I ran across this tank at a flea market.  It is aluminum and looks to be well made.  The cap is a genuine Monza cap.  Does anyone know which model this tank was used on or have any information about this type of tank?

It's an aftermarket trials tank.

It looks similar to one of Hitchcocks', or some Indian vendor has copied it - not unknown. Same Indian tap that H's supply with theirs.
