Oil Tanks 20
There is more to the choice of an oil tank than meets the eye
Dave does not like alloy tanks for a good reason. T'was late 60's a race at Brands. I was leading the race on the last bend on the last lap. Agostini on the MV was behind me. The race was as good as won then the oil tank let go. The bottom came out of it along with the contents over the tyre. The result: Broken ankle and a very strong view on alley oil tanks.
So we ensure that cant happen. Like usual we examine failure modes and modify using new techniques.
Our oil tanks come in a wide variety of styles. We do supply alloy tanks but they are baffled and double welded and the construction of them makes failure far less likely. Our tanks are made on site at so we can make any special arrangements for you but our standard range is pretty good!
