    The stock fuel petcock and gascap fit PERFECTLY with the old top load gas tanks from the 70-80's style mopeds. I just fitted a 1976 malaguti 1.25 gallon tank to my Modena GT 2 and used the old 80cc stock tank's petcock and cap and it worked absolutely perfect and sealed up without a leak to be found.

    The perfect tank upgrade for a motorized bike. (will post some pics of the tank on the bike later)
    P.S. for those wondering secured this guy for $50 plus $9 for shipping and just a bit a surface rust on the inside and the original cap (I liked the stock one better though). The came out with one night of soaking in some white vinegar.

    Thanks, I'm loving it so far! More than twice the range, easier to mount than the stock tank, and looks AMAZING on a modena GT 2

    It started off being just a means of transport but slowly I've been building it into a Cafe racer/ street fighter hybrid.

    Definitely liking the cafe racer look.
