ISO Black/silver Sixty8 tank covers?

I know it’s been a longtime snce these were available new but I’ve just found out about them. Looking for a black/silver Union Jack tank cover for my ‘05 Bonnie Black. None on eBay (except Hawaiian flowers) and while Triumph dealers show them for a discounted $25, it is a tragically outdated inventory from Triumph and none are available anywhere. Anyone have one they’d be willing to part with?! -Phoeff99

I saw a new one of these on ebay recently but did not take much notice. I even recall seeing one of the stupid red ones with the yellow flowers on it! There is quite a lot of old new stock of the air cooled Hinkley bonnies appearing as dealers clear out to make way for the water cooled stuff. I am sure if you search there for the next 6 months one will turn up.

I really liked the coloured Union Jack tank cover. I have seen a few for sale over the years but they're few and far between nowadays.

Good luck

Yeah I see the few flowered ones on eBay but that seller has only the floral pattern. I have saved the search on eBay so if one does show up I should see it. I just thought I’d check to see if any folks had one and changed their mind or have since replaced the bike and the cover stayed for some reason....anyway thanks all. I’ll keep my eyes peeled!

Thanks but the postage from the US is a deal breaker for me

Union jack cover

i bought a union jack cover new a couple of years ago for my 07 Thruxton thinking that it would fit. Sadly it didn't, my tank is the changeover model ie EFI size but for the carb model. I'd sell it if the price is right.

Have a Mono jack one somewhere in the shed along with all the other bits being saved for a rainy day. Waiting for a retirement project.
