Hi Folks,
I have a 1988 Paso 750 which had a leaky tank, that was one pinhole too many...so I found a NOS tank in so.cal. mint inside, still had foil covers over the ports with red overspray, neat to find a relic like this. Anyway, my existing tanks gas cap, flange and fuel tap do not fit this tank!! The new tank has a bigger hole with a different screw count and the gas tap is a female 20mm hole on the opposite side from where my old one had a male threaded fitting!!??? What year and model Paso tank do I have? Paint looks right, cagiva elephant in Ducati logo (my old tank had no elephant...)

Will attach some pics with measurements shortly...

Looks like the tanks is from a 907 i.e. so now looking for the gas cap and flange+gasket for this thing, any help would be terrific! Thanks folks...

you can most likely still find one at your local Ducati dealer. Same on used on the 851
If not try Ed Miltch at Guzzitech he recently took in a 907

That seller has an interesting NOS 'P750' tank. It's a 907IE tank with a P750 paintjob. It has the connections on the right and the brackets for the fuel pump and tubes. Since the P750 was out of production when the 907IE came out I wonder why Ducati did this. :wacko:
