saw the one on ebay with the moulding flaw and was sorely tempted
 
 
I think you'd have a market for rsv mille tanks

I took a look at his webpage and mailed him asking if he could do a Gen 2 with a couple of extra litres capacity, he replied that tooling would be £2500 and would need a perfect tank.
Can somebody more knowledgeable than me add a survey with names, model etc so we can get a list together and get people to commit financially?

Before we get carried away with polls etc, let me speak to Griff as technically it would be trading to put deals together which has to be ok'd by him.
 
I don't see it being an issue but it's his call.

On the subject of trading the tanks through the forum Griff has requested the maker of the tanks to ring if he wishes to do so. I don't know that he does but just in case. He likes to chat to people first before sanctioning it as the site is so closely linked to his business.
 
Or people can talk to the Tank maker direct.
 
In the meantime discuss but please no making deals via the forum.

That is a good idea... It is not fair to Griff to just go wading in... Although he would also know he can buy direct to sell through AP too... But best talk to Griff first.

Cool, give him loads of stick, he loves it. He's on the road at the moment but should be back tomorrow.
 
Having just spent 45 mins wrestling my tank bolts back in after my tank has swelled I would have gladly launched said tank into outer space and put on a non swelling Carbon tank. Luckily I won the battle of wills, for now !

Just spoke to Griff.. Just have to wait for him to talk to a guy he promised could do carbon part on the forum. I am not going to tread on anyones toes on the forum, its simply not fair. Not to say I will not do any RSV tanks it's just not through the forum unless I have Griff say yes, if the other guy steps up and wants to do them, great. 

So for now.. I am off to remake the mould for this.... lol..
