NOS RT3 Fuel tank

Post by yclassic » Wed Jan 30, 2019 12:18 pm

Hey Guys - since a couple guys have asked about the tank I've got an evilbay - here is the story for those on the forum . $1230 buys it with PP friends and family or check plus shipping . That is what I've got in it .
Thanks,

$1,230- Wow

maybe there is a top restorer out there that would be interested but with what these bikes are truly worth will be interesting... Good luck

I agree on the pricing . When I was buying all the NOS Yamaha stuff I was restoring a '73 CR250M Elsinore and so much of this stuff almost seemed cheap relative to the Honda . I think my NOS RT2 tank set me back a little over $800 if I recall . The nice thing is it's not imperative that I sell it so if I can get my money back I'll sell it otherwise I'll put it in one of my glass cases for display . I bought a RT3 new in '73 so the connection is pretty strong .

Seeing/having a NOS tank would be very rare for sure.

It's easy.....
You can either upload a picture here.....using the attachments function at the bottom of the screen when your're creating a post (or editing it)

OR....

Create an account at IMGUR.com then upload it there and copy the link and paste it here.

I think I'll do a complete Step by step on Photo uploading now that we're on a new platform.

Thanks for the help . Even starting a new thread doesn't seem to allow me to post directly from my photo files in the same way I would attach a pic to an e-mail , post to e-bay etc . I haven't used it in years , but I know I have a Flickr account and actually think I may have posted some pics there . I just pulled the tank out of the box and every time I look at it I'm staggered by it's condition - it is dead nuts perfect ! Not a mark . When I got it back in 2006 I even sprayed the inside of it with some Wurth HHS 2000 lubricant which leaves an oily film so the inside didn't even get any surface rust sitting around in the box all those years. But what a piece from the way back machine. Of the original box too.

Tried to retrieve pics . The best way is to just send me an e-mail @ k27bry@yahoo.com and I'll send them along .
Thanks,
