Mystery Tank

The petrol tank shown on the bike below is not an orginal fitment and I'd like to identify it if I could so that I can get another petrol tap (petcock) for it.

I have a suspicion that it might originally have been from an old British bike, I just don't know which machine it might be off and was wondering if anyone had any ideas.


  1. My guess would be some sort of 70's Honda tank...not by the shape...but by the cap, latch, and door that have the look of the one on my '77 CB-550...?

  2. After googling CM-400, there were images of tanks similar to the one on your bike. But without the 'knee-notch' areas....? It's a mystery...

    1. Thanks, Larry. Yes, it is definitely some kind of older Honda tank.
