The gas tank story is funny. It's a barn find piece found by a friend who thought this could be interesting for one of our upcoming project.
This is from a 50 sport moped from the early sixties. The previous owner was probably dreaming to own later a BMW and he added two decals from a Paris dealer in Bastille. I decided to keep it as it is. I think it's rather funny to think that this guy couldn't have imagine or dream that later his tank would have beeen mounted on a BMW race bitza !!!
Besides the story it has a good patina and looks perfect on the sprintbeemer !
