    Hello,

    I bought the rear fuel tank and the aluminum air filter box from Mirans bike a few weeks ago:

    It is exactly the one on the pic with all the decals and the number 72.

    But I dont have the subframe that connects the rear tank to the main frame. Does anyone have some pics of it?

    I want to mount the tank to my TE610e.

    Thanks.

    Schelbi.

    A mechanical engineer? OK, we both togehter should be able to build it :wink: I'm a civil engineerr:D

    Don't know what happened to the rest. I bought the used tank and the new air filter box from a parts dealer in Bavaria. I asked them about the fairing but they didnt know anything about it.

    I'm going to ask the owner of Stanovnik's team, Josef Zupin. His company imported all Husqvarnaa to Germany in the 90's.
    Maybe he can give me some details.
