I'm guessing by 'concealed tank' he means 'ancient miniscule fuel vessel dumped inside plastic receptacle four times its volume' :lol:

Derringer are where it's at for this kind of thing.

I suppose you might get away with it in some countries but to use that on UK roads you're going to need to get it registered for the road, MOT tested and then you have rider licensing and insurance, otherwise plod will want a word.

The same applies to some of the electric MTB's that are gaining in popularity....
