My brothers bike.... he put indicators back on about 10 years ago ....to register it so he could ride short distsnce to train station....but my father reminded him of the promise he made him when he got the bike at 15...that he would never ever ride it on the road

The clear plastic weld...on the tank...I am thinking if I cant find a tank in reasonable condition I will do a few more plastic welds...on the hairline cracks...not yet leaking and then do restoration.
Does anyone have any suggestions where I could get genuine looking replacement decals

The crack was horizontal running on the line just below  the decal..
Ps I loved the forum posts on here about a tank restoration...I thought the plastic welds although clear would ruin tank forever

Once it's cracking like that it's pretty much toasted. Welding won't fix it. The plastic is done.

Best find another tank that is in better condition that hasn't been exposed to the harsh Aussie UV rays!
I'm restoring a 125 tank at the moment it's coming along nicely.

Hey, all.  As I was working on my 125's, replacing one cracked tank with a spare, I notice the extra threaded inserts in the tank.  Sorry to bring up an old topic, but Jock's picture captured them so nicely.  They are alone and aren't for tank mounts or petcocks - what went there?  Or even better, what could I put there - anything cool like a little toolbag or something?  Hate to let threaded inserts go to waste.

Looks like a boost bottle mount to me, Adam.

Dragging up an old post here... the inserts under the tank on mine have the horn bolted on.
