Hi Radam,that tube looks as if anyone could make one welded or bolted I mean its not part of the structure or anyhting.As for the tank I should think any number of moped or small motorcycle tanks would do the job and look just as good or better,use your imagination and a tape measure and you can come a long way! Maybe you want the original look then you will have to keep searching,if not I hope this helps,greetings from Holland,Jerry.

Re: WANTED Batavus Horizontal gas tank and top tub

hey jerry,

i did think about just trying to make my own top tube ... i dont know about an aftermarket gas tank tho ... it kindof a weird shape up near the front but maybe i could try it out...

I think i just might try it and see what happens...

but still prefer the original look...

im not sure ... we will see

Hey Radam,yeah that gas tank would look great and you could probably incorporate something in the top tube for those mounting points at the front,dont forget tomount everything in rubber though or theres a big chance that the tank could split from the vibration.Oh and dont forget to make sure the top of the forks dont hit the tank on full lock. I would mock the tube up first with piece of old pvc pipe and thick cardboard,dont you guys call that construction paper? and glue it all togetether and if it works copy it in metal maybe aluminium because its softer and easier to work than steel also lighter.Anyway Im sure youll manage and if you get stuck post a message on this forum and I or someone else will try to help you out.Have fun with your moped,heres a photo of one of my little projects,all the best Jerry.

theres little or no rust, and there shouldn't be any dents but i won't be able to get you a picture until thanksgiving break next wed. there is a gas cap. and its toptank Batavus Regency just like the one you want in the picture.

Re: WANTED Batavus Horizontal gas tank and top tub

sounds good man!

I am pretty sure that I DO want to buy this tank!

what color? ... is not real important, i can paint it.

how about the inside... any sludge or old gas thats been sitting?

and how much do you want for it ... or do you want me to make an offer.

i would like to see a picture before i make an offer

thank you,

If this falls through, i have a Batavus tank i'm selling here "https://www.mopedarmy.com/forums/discuss/2/102814/102814/";

Re: WANTED Batavus Horizontal gas tank and top tub

i can get those pictures for you wed. (maybe tuesday night) you can just make an offer on it then. and it's been gas free for awhile so there's no sludge.
