IT425 Replacement Tank was created by Derek Atkinson

My IT425 tank has finally cracked beyond what I care to repair. I've been looking for a replacement, but am not sure which other models of tanks would fit. I'm interested in OEM tanks as well as determining if any of the Clarke tanks would fit in a straightforward way. Not worried about color, just want to stop soaking my thigh with gas when the tank cracks again behind one of my plastic welds. All help and info is appreciated.

Thought I would share my months later solution. Clarke universal tank, DIY wishbone nonsense. Hopefully this helps somebody who has the same issue.

I have some IT fuel tanks among many other IT parts available for sale.

Family member passed away last year and among his collection were the following IT's.
1977 IT250  This one will need some TLC.  (Just got it home today.)
1980 IT425  This is in AMAZING condition!!

We have the 1980 IT425 up & running, didn't take much, was stored inside a mini-storage unit.  It rips around really well & takes me back to my 1970's - 1980's of riding dirt bikes.  The 1977 IT250 I just brought home today, it was stored in his parents attached garage.  Motor was replaced but they say he had it up & running and rode it after the engine swap.

Anyway, in addition to these 2 bikes there are a lot of parts.  Tanks, fenders (F&R), side cover/number plates, Front number plates, speedo, headlight, exhaust pipes, silencers, etc.

I am bringing as much as I can fit on my 20' equipment trailer to a swap meet this coming weekend and another swap the following weekend.  Everything must go.  Proceeds from the bikes go to his parents.

I can text pictures of the bikes & parts.  Don't have them on the computer to attach here.  I'll watch for replies to this post for inquires.

Thanks, Dan
