I concur with the fuel cap. Nothing wrong with that :P
I'd like to know what Keith thinks is wrong with it though. I'm curious...


They do look nice with a coat of paint here and there just to tidy things up a bit. All of the aluminium parts will polish up great with some elbow grease.
As for the fuel tank it comes down to a matter of preference, and i can see the appeal of wanting to leave it as is.
The other age related parts will come together in time.

For now anyway it runs, which from a relative newbie is no mean feat. Well done that man. :P

I would have thought it would be the small eared tank cap.

It is a "small eared" cap, with flat tops to the ears.The 3 LS's that i have are all the same, just like this one.
Later ones from around '55 onwards (thereabouts) had a more rounded top to the "ears". Otherwise called "big ears" to some of us.
102's seem to follow the same pattern as well if you're interested.
