Yoshimura treasure.

Scrapheap challenge, it’s that TV show where something useful is created out of scrap from a heap, it’s so obvious now that I think about it…

This rather battered fuel tank is a genuine Yoshimura alloy race item to fit a Suzuki GSX-R750 SRAD.

To many it might look fit for the bin, never mind a scrapheap!?

To it’s new owner it’s the starting point of a fantastic project SRAD.

Before it’ll see fuel again it will require a total refurb, that’s now underway thanks to Bill Simpson, a guy who’s no stranger to fabricating saucy items for racing motorcycles from alloy.

I hope to hear some good news soon, meanwhile tanks for the memories.
