| As mentioned in my post in Penton Talk I recently acquired Steel Tanker V074.
The bike is very rough, and missing most everything that is hard to find (except the screw on cap fuel tank which is in excellent shape).
I am trying to accumulate as many of the parts as possible that were unique to the 1968 models before I begin the build.
Some of this stuff is available on ebay at exorbitant prices, and I would prefer to only go that route as absolutely necessary.
So I am appealing to my fellow poggers to please look through your stuff and find any leftover steel tank parts that you aren't going to use and are willing to part with.
My goal is to build this bike not as a showroom queen (it's too rough, would cost too much, and there are plenty of those out there already), but as an as raced National Enduro bike from the 68-69 era (when this bike would have actually been raced).
I'm bringing it in it's as-is condition to the 50th reunion to display, so I can pick up anything that you are willing to sell.
