Ducati 175 Sport tank that's been chromed I guess, you can just make out the little brackets on top of the tank for attaching a pad to lie prostrate on at speed. Those tanks are a work of art in themselves, my mate in Italy actually replicated one as he couldn't find an original, took him weeks.

yea i can remember the little metal loops on top i taught they were for attaching a tank bag goes to show you never stop learning.

Yep Ed tank bag type thing with pad on top, used in the Moto Giro and long distance road races to keep a map, plug spanner, plugs etc etc, good shot of tank here: http://www.pidocchio.net/turboland/MuseoDucati/09Ducati175.jpg
