"Norton High Rider/Roadster SS tank???" Sat Sep-18-10 01:33 PM by merican hot shoe
Glad I found this forum. Hope you can help a newbie out.
First question, (two parts) was there a ever time when the Norton High Rider and Roadster SS used the same fuel tank and were these steel, aluminum or fiberglass?
Second question, and my apologies in advance to any purists that may be offended by the vision(s) that this next question may generate...anybody out there ever put a Norton High Rider/Roadster SS tank on a Triumph pre-OIF twin??? May be hard to believe but, I do have good a reason for wanting to do it.
Finally, if anyone out there has one they would like to part with, I would be interested. Doesn't have to be pretty but must be straight with no leaks. I have added 2 attachments showing the tank tpyes I'm looking for.

They were the same tank, The Brits would make anything work as many differant ways as possible, Early ones were fiberglas, later ones steel.
I don't have any for sale
I have no idea if it would fit a per OIF Triumph but its possible as the Commando back bone is a lot larger than the Triumph, You would have to make up your own mounting tabs and add some padding inside the tank tunnel to fit the Tri. frame
