Has anyone out there bought a Choke tank from Minisport?

Choke owners would have, I'd guess. As far as I'm aware the Choke tanks are unique to Chokes, they won't fit either a top or side-fill Moke without modifications.

Hi PJ. Why not get one fabricated? You could then include all the bits you need for the injection, found these on the web.

Graham, PJ, very interesting.... been looking at much the same - sick of leaks etc due to nozzle damaging the rubber hose connection to tank. The top fill is much better. I was thinking of getting mine modified with the neck of a L/R Series1 tank.... or equivalent. Which company do you know of in London, PJ?

I'd assume that the Choke tanks are pretty close to the same diameter as a late model cylindrical tank. It says on the Moke Austraia website that they fit all Moke Californians. Which is wrong, of course, it wouldn't fit mine.. The side panniers of a Choke are almost the same dimensions as a Moke's, although they are probably a few mm wider because they don't have the pressings in the inner wall. The tank would have to have baffles, they are so long and thin you couldn't have half a tank full sloshing back and forwards.

The Moke Australia website shows that they are 1123mm long if that's any help to you. http://www.mokeaustralia.com/products/F ... -28-1.html

I'm sure that werewolf can answer your questions and would be delighted to sell you one.
