Markus,
The tank already looks very good.
I would also like to buy one if the price is good.
I hope that you send more photos soon.

Great work Markus. Your prototype looks great. I am enjoying the pictures. I'm sure we all are.

In the picture link below, it looks like the HP2 air box is also a vacuum form and fused assembly.

I'm looking forward to seeing the holding fixture and welding machine. Thanks for including us in the process

(I can't resist asking. What material is the tool?)

- Jim

Hard foam is the right term. I hope this product is successful enough to need an aluminum tool.

Terrific work Markus, I think this is the auxiliary fuel tank many of us had hoped someone would make. It's the right material and the right size. Thanks for the great job.

Add me to the list of buyers.

Now, gentlemen, as the completion of the product is coming near, I have some logistics to clarify.

Ideally I would send a couple of tanks in one parcel to two or three of you guys in the US who in turn would take care of the shipment to individual ADVriders in the US. I thought of East, Middle and West US. As I am not making a buck in the whole action, I would like to keep the costs as low as possible for me.

First step would be a quick rollcall who definitely wants one. And - if I understood this correctly - the tank would be available with filler under the seat and on the right side. So please state what you want.
Second stept would be to find two or three guys who would be willing to receive more than one tank and take care of the further distribution in the US.
Third step would be that Markus gives us a price for the finished product.
Four is that I give you the price for the shipping.
And five is that you send me the money, Euros please, not that soft greenback. (And keep in mind that it could be that the exchange rate rises to 2 bucks for 1 Euro until the money arrives in my bank account! For heavens sake, stop burning your money in Irak!)
Once I have the money I will ship the tanks.

Capito? Easy! Start!

Just for your info - UPS for a parcel of 15 kilos (33 pounds) is 245 Euros! If anyone knows cheaper transport, let me know.

I'm very impressed with the design effort that's gone into this tank, and am extremely interested in purchasing one (what else can I do with my money?!)

I hate to ask this; what's the freight cost to Western Australia (zipcode 6714) ?

To find out the cost on the UPS.com site I need a location plus the zipcode. So what's the name of the place? (As I might sleep when you get this message - type Herrsching as the location where it starts and 82211 as the zipcode.)
Absender means sender, that's me in Herrsching, Empfänger means recipient, that's you in Australia. Anzahl der Pakete means number of parcels and Gesamtgewicht means total weight. The rest should be self explanatory. Which of course only applies if you get the german site as I did.

One more general question: will the production tanks be all black, or would something like a semi-transparent tank (like the stock HP2 tank) be a possibility?

At first is black an white (nearly semi-transparent) possible.
But now I have to make a few tanks and make hard tests (pressure, heat, offroad, and so on) Because I donīt want to sell bullshit. If all is ok than we can talk about selling. I think you all want a qualitity job?

Put me on the list for a right side filled tank.
Semi transparent preferred, but not a deal killer!

Tank!

Hi again Markus,


Would the tank with the side fill option fit on an HP2 with Touratech Zega HP2 rack system and would the side fill tank be more expensive?

Sorry to bog you down with even more questions, again they're not a 'deal killer'. It's just great to have the chance of an extra tank with some options.

Although having said all that a standard tank would be fine, I have a TT QR seat fastener!

Thanks again for all the hard work.

FP.
