Oil tank shelf in

Completed the brackets and support bolts for this.

The bolts fitted are left over from the build but will be changed to slightly shorted ones and also will fit rivnuts as rear access (once covered) wont be quite so easy !

The shelf has been designed to be removable post build in case the tank needs to be removed but also to facilitate regular / scheduled maintenance. The idea being, that you simply remove the two leading bolts and the whole shelf tilts to allow ready access to all tubes, joints, breathers etc

The tank brackets supplied need to be mounted at opposing ends to ensure rigidity. These have pre drilled holes that match the presunken threads in the tank in various locations to provide a variety of securing options.

Looking at the location of the forward bracket I should still have ample room to secure a small alloy lip to allow the Two Trig base units (Radio and Transponder) to sit safely and with easy access behind the seat.
