I didn't notice this until I looked at the 68 XL500 tank for sale on EBay. Is this an early generation Rupp tank? Every '68 tank I have seen has a triangular plate mounted on the bottom to which the mounting studs are attached. This on has no plate, so the studs are attached directly to the tank...
Looks NOS, original paint, gas cap is original paint, but blue. Some nicks in the paint, but no dents. Petcock has a shut off valve, inside is clean as a whistle.

Anyone ever seen this before? This tank has a star stamped in the bottom. I've had a dozen of these in various sizes and formats, but I've never seen any with this stamp on them. I'm pretty sure the tank is NOS and the green paint is original (where's chipped, I can see clean bare metal...

I know I'll need it as soon as it sells, but here it goes anyway.

I got a Gilson yesterday. It is very similar to my Wards 525 (which is why I got it). The 525 has a hole for the rear gas tank filler neck. This "new" Gilson doesn't.
Is there anyway to tell what model it is by the pictures? I can take more pics if needed.
There aren't any frame tags as it has...
So I have a 69 roadster and the gas tank, but no mounting hardware. Would anyone have a pic of how the tank is mounted? I have looked at the schematics on black widow but still confused. I am aware that I will need to purchase some parts, but what?
Any help is appreciated.
