There are 2 types used on the 80 , early models 1957/8 have a teardrop shaped indent in the tank and there is a flush fitting teardrop shaped flip up filler cap, later post 1958 have a plain round hole with an aluminium cap with a single fin on it to turn and lift.

Flip top filler

Post  piston 197 on Mon Aug 07, 2017 1:40 pm

If you require the flip up type ( 1957/Cool I possibly have one, but these will not fit the later tanks from 1958 onwards only the early type with the teardrop depression around the hole

Fuel cap

Post  piston 197 on Mon Aug 07, 2017 2:51 pm

I will look but do not think I have one of this type ? only the early flip top type which will not fit this later tank, I do have new ethanol proof rubber seals for this type of cap.
this cap was used on post 1958 Cruiser 80, all Cruiser 84, all Cruiser 89, all Light Cruiser 79 it was also used on Falcon 87, but the fuel measure was cut off when fitted to the falcon as it had a centre tunnel in the tank.
I will look tomorrow, but it is doubtful
