HARRIS 24ltr petrol tanks

Post by YETI » Thu Mar 07, 2013 9:41 pm

Does anyone know how many of these were made by HARRIS ?
I`m a jammie bugger and have one , i`ve had it for about
10yrs ( brought it off a fella in TAUNTON ) .
just curious ?
plus loads of you want bigger tank ranges , maybe approach HARRIS
about doing a small run of these ? though they werent cheap !
recon about £500 when they were doing them for endurance racing
but they are perfect blown up versions of the VTR tank in aluminium .
150 miles on a tank full :thumbup:

Bloody hell mate, you never cease to amaze me with some of the parts you have. :lol: :lol:

I doubt they made too many, especially at the price they would charge for them. :eek2 Only good for those that are doing long distance touring where petrel stops are not in abundance.

I don't think that is quite a copy of the Harris tank... That one has the "look" of an extended tank and the Harris one is just a larger version that looks the same as standard (except for Ram Air).

Blimey the Harris must look real bulgous (if that's a word :roll: ) with ramair slots. I never realised it was designed for that.
