    foto 228.jpg Hi Guys,

    Normally I would post this in the classifieds, but the vintage guys never seem to have anything on there. I'm looking for an Alloy Lyta type Husqvarna works tank from the 1971-1974 era. Any condition. Any help in finding one would be great. Email nortonguitar@gmail.com Thanks in advance

    These are the Lyta tanks used by the works riders.

    I've got one but it doesn't have the crease below the Husqvarna decal. It is a Lyta though. I can be reached at jeff250mx@sbcglobal.net

    I stand corrected here...

    The Lyta tanks were made in the UK. The team bikes that Bryan Wade and Andy Roberton had the Lyta tanks. The factory cottoned on to them and had the works bikes fitted with them.

    I have one of these tank. I found it in a pile of stuff my Dad left me. Couldn't find out what it was for but know I'm going to paint it and put it on my shop shelf. Thought it was for a truiphm or something along those lines...Pretty cool to find out its something sort of special.

    The Lyta tank that are looking for does not fit nor suit a 67 model bike,..it is too short and will not fill the "gap" between the seat and the forks..
