    Default Tank Pad

    Hi Folks,

    I have recently just assembled my new paint work to an early 851, Luccineli rep on Alloy Tank.
    I am after a suitable Tank Pad, prefrably like Original back rubbers base items in the e 80s or something suitable for Tank.
    Any one have one to sell or know where I may fine one.
    Cheers

    For a while (I haven't checked lately) they were sold on Ebay but they didn't last very long. Foam was way to soft. I have been thinking about making some with the appropriate foam but I never getaroundtuit.

    Hi Paul

    A chap on here called motobob1000 used to sell accurate reproductions of the protectors fitted by Ferracci back in the day. I've got one on my SP3- it looks better (IMO) than the modern carbon fibre ones, although the adhesive could be a bit stronger (Bob - if you're reading this, anything I can use to fix it better?).

    However, if anyone knows of a source of the "period correct" foam rubber pads (two small rectangular pieces - had them on the SP3 until they disintegrated!) I'd definitely be interested. Are these the type you have in mind tomake Marvin???

    Hi Andrew,

    I am not familiar with the one you speak of. I was thinking of the "tombstone with holes" type. If you have a pic of the two piece please post it.

    Yes, one like that. I bought one on fleabay but it lasted for a very short time because it was of a really soft foam.

    I made my own, but the material isn't the most durable.
