Hi can anybody help,
I am restoring a 51 VH500 which I bought as a complete basket case, the problem I have is that the oil tank does not seem to fit,
the bottom bolt for the tank can go into one of two holes in the bracket, if I try to use the one nearest the rear wheel then there is no room to fit a nut behind it (it Fouls on the gearbox lug) if I try to use the the other, the two oil pipes are too close to the timing case ,
so the question is do I have the wrong gearbox (Burman G107) or the wrong oil tank (5852-35 6 pint)
any help would be greatly appreciated as I just need to sort this, the carb, the seat, the battery, the electrics etc and it might start.
