Thank you to the wonderful people we have met and been dealing with & thank you for all your support and kind words, we feel you have become friends (even if sometimes you have wanted to kill us!)
All the parts have been made for all the tanks that are over due and a batch of tanks are going out tomorrow (people I have been speaking too) and More will go out shortly. We are waiting for some more fuel tap plates as the ones we had made originally were drilled for a pingle tap and therefore the hole is too big for an original tap. The tanks that are having a Buell cap we will supply a gasket, backing ring & screws.
You will all get your tanks very soon!
Best wishes
Michelle & Tony

We only use skirting boards because we are crap at getting a neat edge on the plaster ;)

It would be a shame to paint them!

Stuff like this takes time. It's not mass production.

I've been having some brake stuff made for my car project, and it's been two and a half years.
I'm patient, as I know it's totally bespoke and will be worth the wait when it turns up :)

These tanks look lovely :)

When my Buell S1 Whitelightning tank started to show signs of the paint blistering problem several years ago. I researched the options, e.g. sealants, covers, repaint, alloy tank. Along the way I’ve been let down, twice. The worst case was when my tank was with a guy in Scotland for a year, only to find nothing had been done. Having to cover up with a Baglux just made the Buell look really drab.
Today the Final Solution arrived in the shape of a polished Holt Manta tank. I can only echo the feedback of other Buell Holt tank owners. Tony’s workmanship and attention to detail is exceptional. It’s been said before but the tank really is an engineering work of art. Now I can see the tank in the flesh I’m rethinking about painting, it’s just too good to cover up in my opinion.
I disagree with those who say the wait has been long, for me it hasn’t been a long wait, rather a patient one.

Hi guys
Just wanted to let you all know, all Manta tanks that were originally ordered are all completed and the last 2 will be sent tomorrow. All the small tanks have all parts made and complete they just need to be assembled. They will be delivered in January as early as possible.
Wishing you all a great Christmas
Michelle & Tony

:shock: Wow! Crappiest aluminum scrap ever sourced. You'd never polish all that oxidation out before you broke through. India, depending on where, can be more humid than where I live and aluminum doesn't do well sitting around. All it takes is 2 weeks for a stack of 5052 to start oxidizing like that in my shop. We have to start working it the day or 2 after we receive it then ship right away so we don't have to worry about it.
