@Westieterrier .... any other updates since their meeting?

Patiently waiting with 🤞.
Hey Speedy, from my last contact with Daniel Carlos, engineer at IMS, in April they started design work with a template. Feel free to send them an email for an update, though I doubt you’ll get anything close to an eta at this point. I’m psyched we made it this far. Patrick

Hopefully, someone's gotten their TW to them by now. I'll send them an email. Want to be careful not to "bug them", but show we're still out here interested & hopeful.

Personally, I'm not in a huge hurry for a tank, but it'd be nice to get a green light from them if they decide to make one. Then I'll be in a hurry for it. ;)

I followed up on this today with Daniel at IMS. Here is his reply to me as follows:

Hi Tommy, I haven’t had an update on this project in a few weeks now since things have been so busy here, but we did ask to have a look at one local riders TW200 to see how difficult it would be or how much space there is to build an oversized tank for it. I haven’t spoken with management in a few weeks now on an update for that, but I should know more around the end of this month.

We better not bug him too much. One of us can check with him again for a progress report come June.

Who was it that took their bike down there?

Thanks for posting this, as I hadn't emailed Daniel yet, so now I'll digress.

Daniel didn't say they had looked at anyone's TW, so question is have they?

Seems there was 2 guys here on the forum that mentioned they could. Time to find them, and inquire. ;)

I can help out too. I live about 15 minutes from IMS and work just up the freeway. I currently have two gas tanks sitting in my garage they can play with, and I can bring them my bike to look at (once I put the engine all back together!).
Hey you! Yeah....YOU! 😀

Have you had any contact and/or taken your bike by there?

If not, what you waiting for!?!? ;)

I’m betting someone at IMS has a Tdub, a lot of D37 riders have them “for their wife”
One of the fastest turned me on to his TW and at the time I thought he was joking, rode it and bought one.
IMS makes a quality product I have one that is 17 years old and still works as new with no leaks and frequent crash tests.
I need 2 large TW tanks ASAP and could buy the Clarke today but am waiting to see if IMS will deliver

Whoa, whoa, whoa buddy. I just got my bike back in one piece. 😉

I think above the OP said IMS told them they’d reach out if they needed one.

That said, if anyone has intel that they need a bike, I am happy to drop mine off there!

I talked to Dan 2 days ago. They have been super busy and he forgot to ask the higher-ups at the company as to where this project stands. He said check back with him in a week or so and he would try to have an answer. Problem is...I may forget to check back with him...haha so please one of you guys feel free to contact them and inquire in a week or so.

He said check with him in about a week. I checked with him 10 days ago. I've also lost his email address, so how about one of you shooting him an email? He said he would know more when we checked next.

I’ve emailed them twice now and have not received any response.
Wrote about the fact that they have been making this bike nearly unchanged for 30 years and it deserves a special tank…. nada
