The recent topic posed by JPC "10 MPG. WIYJ A NEW 1915 cc" https://www.speedsterowners.co...g-wiyj-a-new-1915-cc brings this question:
Can the small fuel tank being installed by a few makers of Speedsters be replaced with this larger 12 gal. fuel tank being offered on *eBay. . . without having to make major structural changes to the front trunk?
*Note: I was recently told that this larger tank is similar to the one Vintage Speedsters in Scottsdale, AZ has started using in all their speedsters.
