Any ideas who makes, where I can get, a new petrol tank guard?

MIB Components in Leamington used to make them but I think they have gone out of business.

If I remember tomorrow I will take some pics of one.
If a few people want one YRM should drop the price, I got a couple a few months ago.

Unfortunately it's aluminium.
I got a gorgeous stainless one on GB002 from America years ago but the guy didn't make them for long.

This seems a good price - I've sent them a mail. Prerhaps if we get a few ordered they will give a bit of discount or inc p&p.
