Acerbis Tank XT550

I have finally discovered that a new Acerbis tank that I have had in stock for a while which is marked up as an XT 250 500 550 item definitely does not fit the 500 (two valve type) This tank was deleted in 1994 from the catalogue and I think must be quite rare.
Any takers???

300 pounds (yes I know that is alot, but I have two TT600s and if I needed one myself I would be taking the risk of not finding one)
Yes it is new.
If however you are prepared to wait long enough I might still be able to get one at normal price (around 185 pounds)
Thanks
D L.

Yes that is a mite expensive ! my TT only cost £600, do Acerbis still carry the TT tank ? I wouldn't mind a 2nd hand one if you could get one.
I bought a 2nd hand one for my XT550 for £60 but I know I was just v.lucky. Jbw
